|Rainbow grey, asymetrical earrings||
The asymmetrical fringe in these earrings gives them a bold look. As always the beads used in this are of exquisite quality, and the earwires are sterling silver.
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. The wonderful bugle beads in this design are of Japanese origin.
I used transparent, grey coloured, fire polished seed beads throughout these earrings. The fire polished finish on these beads gives them the most stunning iridescence. The fringe is finished off with some bugle beads, which are a haematite colour with a frosted finish which gives them a marvellous texture. This beads 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.
The drop length of the earrings is a little over 3.5cm.
Each pair of earrings takes about 2 hours to make.
