More Earrings

One of the first beading projects I tackled was a pair of earrings. The woman who taught me called it Cherokee Weave. It took practice and perseverance but I finally mastered the stitch.

It’s been a favourite ever since — I love to wear dangly things. And so do many of the women who buy my work.

Here’s a variation on the original theme.

The earrings were made on tear drop forms with size 11 Japanese seed beads. The thread is a multi-coloured quilting thread, which produces a nice colour gradation.

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