A Very Symmetrical Design

About this design:

I had this marvelous idea... It bombed. Had another idea... it didn't work either. So there I was with 2 copper circle pieces in search of a new design.
I finally came up with another idea and it worked!

I had the gorgeous Czech beads and I wanted to combine them with the fabulous copper chain from LB. The necklace worked out fairly well but the ear rings? What a pain in the wazoo! Ear rings, simple ear rings, and they didn't want to be put together. I fussed with them made a couple of false starts and finally got somethings acceptable. I probably should have shelved them and saved my self a lot of frustration.

But the Czech beads are sooooo fabulous.....

    I like the little earrrings. They have character! The necklace is just as FAB as your other pieces. I like a symmetrical piece for a change! ;) I also like how you alternate the pieces within the circles.

    Thanks Asia.
    When I went back to buy the extra beads only 3 strings were left. I thought about buying all three but decided to leave one string for some other lucky beader. :D

    Thanks Julie. Ear rings with character…. OK I can accept that but they may get taken apart so I can start out fresh. :D

    One thing you could do to the earrings without gutting them is to slide one bead onto the fishhook in place of the little coil. I think they are fabulous as is, but I have done that trick on some of mine and it can really help sometimes. :) The necklace is superb!! DOn’t you dare touch that! :) !!!!
