This is harder than I thought!

I'm trying to recreate a beautiful pair of earrings I saw. It's become quite the challenge!

It looked simple enough- knotted thread with a bead at the top of each peak- wrapping around the length of the hoop (like a stegosaurus).

These are peaks #'s 2 & 3 (I undid the first attempt). It's time consuming, but I'll keep at it.

Wish me luck!

You don't need luck, Carolyn...they're looking lovely.

Your post reminded me of this etsy seller I ran into the other day....

Beautiful, eh? I just wish the wiring was either brass or an aged gold of some sort. I'm not a big fan of silver...

Are you coming to the screening? It looks very promising. Lots of people have expressed enthusiasm from the last couple of days in the festival.
