Sunburst Bohemian Earrings


About this design:

I've been experimenting with a lot of beadwork in my designs lately, and I find that the possibilities are endless. I love picasso czech glass beads, and my new favorite type of bead is diamond cut brass, which are featured in these earrings. I love colorful things. I try to be as colorful as possible, or instead I stick with a color scheme as I did with these earrings. The brass triangle links are my favorite part of these earrings.

Components:

czech glass beads, diamond cut brass beads, brass triangle links, beading wire, antiqued brass earwires

    Very nice! Such a well thought-out design. Great idea using those triangles the way you did. Have fun venturing into the use of color–it can totally uplift the soul and energize the mind. I’ve also been working with it, and it’s a blast. Have fun creating! :)

    These are awesome- were you able to find the diamond shape wires or did you make them? Picasso beads are very addictive- I have an extensive collection myself- I love the little triangles at the bottom too! Great job-they’ll go with all kinds of clothes!
