    These earrings are beautiful. Is the top bead a “beaded bead”?

  13. Jennifer A
    Jennifer A says:

    Thanks! Yes the top bead is a beaded bead, (15/0 Toho seedbeads, frosted Teal).

    Wow! I have made several beaded beads using right angle weave with 6/0 seed beads and different sizes of Swarovski crystals. Is this the same technique?

    I agree with everyone above- I love this pick- the colors are great together. I have never done a beaded bead- is it hard? I have lots of seedbeads so I want to try- anyone got a site where I can get directions on how to do this- I just love these earrings. Is you bracelet done the same way- can’t see a close up?

    I forgot to ask. Where did you get that hook? Did you make it? It’s really nice.

  17. Jennifer A
    Jennifer A says:

    Wow, lots of questions :-) I make the hooks myself (using 20 guage sterling silver wire). The teqnique used for the beaded bead is tubular peyote. I have used a pattern from “Bead and Buttons “The best of Bead and Button Magazine – Peyote Stitch Beading Projects”, but with minor modifications as they use a 20mm wood bead as core and I use a 5mm ;-) (Unfortunatelly I don’t have pic. of the bracelet, but it had 3 13mm beaded beads and 5 round Feldspath beads.

    Jennifer,
    I have done some peyote stitching. I’ve also tried a tubular stitch, but haven’t mastered it. I would like to give this stitch another try. This is a picture of a pair of right angle weave beaded bead earrings I have made.

    Jill lovely earrings. I’ve never tried stitching with beads (I know how to sew, embroider, cross-stitch and crochet), but yours and Jennifer’s earrings have got me reconsidering. Mmmmmmm……
