Beaded Ear Rings

I can't believe it was Monday when I last posted - another week seems to have passed me by in a rush (time seems to travel even faster week by week).  I've not entirely been idle but haven't actually made a single card this week which is so unusual for me.  I have however been doing a bit of beading finishing off a couple of projects in between a bit of tidying up in the garden and other essential domestic 'stuff'.  I'm doing a beading demonstration in a couple of weeks time so have been trying to come up with a few items which I've not shown before because many of the same people visit each year and I do like to have something new to show. - also of course I have to try to use items which are available in the shop so I had to trawl around the shelves there too.  The idea for these ear rings (still have to add the ear wires) came from the latest issue of Bead magazine which arrived recently  and there are also a couple of interesting projects in the latest American magazine Bead and Button which I want to try. to  The weather today is absolutely gorgeous and really quite warm so it is a shame really to be indoors so I might get out into the garden and leave the beading until later.


  1. More gorgeous beading samples Val - these are really lovely. Presuming you're talking about demoing at Yandles - if so hope to see you then.

  2. Both pair of earings are beautiful Val, but if I had to pick a pair it would be the gold ones but only because the colour would suit me better. I can't believe the gorgeous weather we're having at the moment.

  3. Val these are gorgeous and look forward to seeing them in the flesh


  4. So pretty & feminine & I marvel at how intricate the colouring of the gold ones with the little details of pinky red. The blue ones are such an unusual shade of blue it would have to be those that I would pick, as well as the fact that my eyes are blue.
    Hope you've had a good day in the garden.
