A New Take Earrings

These earrings are a new take on the old favorite brick stitched earrings but for these earring the fringe suspends from a frame. These earrings are perfect example of the how to adapt to make them your own, as you choose your frame. A V shape, a short tube, a gentle curved tube, or a larger curved tube. Then think how long do I want my chain? Longer? Shorter? You decide. And then the beads! Do you want a simple design, or make it random. The fun begins. The goal of this class is for you to make it your own so there is no class kit. This is a Stars exclusive.

Brick & Peyote Stitched Earrings and Pendant

Using basic stitches you will be a combining a brick stitched start and the peyote stitch to create these fun earrings. As you can see from the pictures you will have the option of launching your beadwork off of a frame of a V shaped metal, a curved or a straight tube, or a metal circle of varying size. You can even use a larger foundation piece of metal or tube to launch a pendant. And it’s your call if you want your earrings suspended long or short from your earring finding. As one of the goals of this class is to make it your own so there is no class kit. The idea is for you to come up with your own unique jewelry. We will be stitching the same design in your bead color of choice and leave with the skill to create additional pieces on your own. The goal of this class is for you to make it your own so there is no class kit. This is a Stars exclusive.

The Crown

The idea for The Crown came about after I saw an adorable crown key fob and I thought it would a really cute piece of beadwork to be

simply an object to look at or strung on a purchased chain, beaded chain or a ribbon through a spoke and then it could then be worn as

a pendant.

Sweet Lady Pendant

This piece was a challenge for me, it started with a picture of an antique necklace. And then the search for the perfect set of components. I couldn’t believe it took me over a year! The component was either too large, too heavy or too expensive. Then I found these wonderful paper mache’ beads. I combined the bead with Czech pearls of three sizes, and then the Toho Demi’s beads came out. The perfect combo! The pendant is a combination of several components stitched together with the finishing touch of the necklace chain. The chain easily comes off of the pendant so you are able to wear it with your other creations.
