Got You Pegged

7 Comments

Wandered through a bead store the other day, silently swearing to myself that I ab-so-tively would not buy anything when what to my wandering eyes should appear but — well, there went my resolve.

By the time I left I had several small items. Not a lot. Really. Just enough to play with. (Gotta keep those creative muscles in shape. 🙂 )

The “pegs” are amazingly light — there’s hardly any weight to them. I bought four different colours, the two shown here as well as pale green and light mauve. I worked up the ear wires with permanently coloured copper wire.

Voila! Instant earrings.

Beads? What can I say — they snuck up on me when I wasn't looking. Now I'm hooked.

  1. Hi Sally,
    first off I wanted to thank you for visiting my blog, that’s how I stumbled on to your blog and I am really happy that I did.your work is amazing.Also may I ask where you got the “pegs” from and if they sell them online? they look amazing and I have been looking for this type of pegs for a long time and haven’t been able to find any .I’d really appreciate you help.
    thank you and happy beading!!

  2. Hi Mana … thanks for your kind comments. On the scale of “amazing” you are a 10+. Exquisite work! As for those “pegs” (I have no idea what they are really called) … I bought them at Beads & Plenty More in Calgary, Alberta.
    http://www.beadsandplentymore.ca/ at the store in the NW. Perhaps you could contact them (maybe include one of my pics so they know what you’re asking about) to see if they can suggest a source. Good luck. 🙂

  3. Way to go, Sherlock! I’ll have a look there too as the colours I found in the bead store were limited. I wonder what you’ll make with yours?
