I started this design in a long earring, but I am now cutting it back to a shorter design for the showcase piece. I will offer the long option in the pattern, but I think the appeal will be for the shorter version.
To create a 3-dimensional look I used three seed bead colors. This pair is approximately 2-3/4 in length. They look wonderful with shoulder length or longer hair. I am not sure how a pixie cut would feel about this length.
I shortened up this pair by one bead length bringing them to a length of
Last, and my favorite length are these silver beauties. The beaded bead adds enough length to bring this pair up to 1-3/4.
The pair I am working on today will have a blue faceted crystal in place of the beaded bead. I will also begin shooting the pictures for the step-by-step instructions. Stay tuned....
