|Green asymmetrical fringe earrings|
The technique I use when making these earrings is not loomwork it's a handweaving technique called brick stitch. This adds to the individuality of each piece and also makes the beadwork really flexible. They hang beautifully when worn. For more information on brick stitch, please click here.|
The glass seed beads are of Czech origin, therefore are top quality. Each individual seed bead is about 2mm in diameter.
I used forest green, opaque, frosted finish seed beeds throughout these earrings. I love frosted finish beads as they have the most wonderful texture. The fringe is finished of with some bugle beads, which are green with silver, twisty linings. These are lovely long bugle beads. The silver lining makes them sparkle, but the lining is also slightly twisty so they have even more texture and sheen to them. This bead is also used in the main body of the earring.
The total length of the earrings from top of the loop to bottom of the longest fringe is 8cm. The fringe on this frames the face beautifully and moves amazingly.
Each pair of earrings takes about 2 hours to make.
