As seen in Jewelry Stringing {Fall 2012}

"Honey Flower"

Vintaj earwires, Arte Bella Surplus honey opal beads (etsy), Yummy Treasures rhinestone bead caps (etsy).
 I used the rhinestone bead caps as the 'flower' part of this design. I had no idea I was going to make this design...until I started playing with the beads. Love it when that happens!
"Amber Waves"

Vintaj earwire, Blue Marble Beads vintage amber oval swirls (etsy), MK Supplies fruit salad rounds (etsy).
This design was planned, unlike the first pair of earrings. I sketched out my design and luckily it turned out exactly like I had envisioned. I love how the row of beads follows the twists in the amber beads!
If you haven't had a chance yet, pick up the Fall issue of Stringing. It is jam packed with inspiring Fall designs! And, if you are interested in my desings they are located in the Earring Section. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Thank you Stringing!
