I have to admit, it was really fun to make. The idea gives so much creative possibilities, that I feel now like my head is about to explode from too much ideas.
I’m having another earrings phase. This time I used lots of flat disc beads, rondelle beads and some flat irregular nuggets, because I think they look awesome when piled up together when all the colours match. I mostly chose natural, Autumn inspired materials and colours, but also handmade ceramic and metal disc beads. I know they’re simple and I know lots of people who would say they’re too simple to blog about them, but I really like them, and honestly – could just anyone match these colours?
Ten new pairs available in my Etsy shop.
I liked this bead, because it was unusual. It’s not just plain silver foil, but it has colourful spots inside. The brown shade is actually very pale. The whole thing has a slightly lighter feeling than the other ones.
I love purple. I never use the whole batch of beads immediately, but this was the closest I’ve got to it. I had a string of these purple dyed agate beads, perfect for earrings. This is just one of the pairs, but I’ve made about six or seven pairs (some of which I often wear). The wire is silver plated nickel-free one, and the small beads are natural howlite.
