About this design:

I'm posting my earrings today too and hope you will consider: going to see the wonderful earrings participants creating using this sweet painting as inspiration. And perhaps making something yourself! The link is in my blog post here:


Brass head pins, waxed linen cord, wood beads, and seed beads

    I’m fascinated by your choice of materials,and how you worked them all together. How EVER did you manage that? Are you working under a microscope??? Knots on a seed beed is pretty impressive to me.
    Too cool for school! :)
