Got You Pegged


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. 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?
