Ammonite earrings

About this design:

I saw this pattern on you tube. They were super easy to make. Another great way to use ammonite Czech glass beads. I think they would look good with any of the coin beads.

Components:

I used Czech glass ammonite beads in a dark topaz color. 11/0 seed beads in gold, 8/0 white seed beads and it called for 4mm round beads, but I used 8/0 seed beads in gold. Czech glass pip beads and 6 lb fireline.

    Oh my goodness, these are fantastic Robin! The whole shape of the earring lends to the Ammonite theme–and the colors you chose make these stunners. I’ve so been enjoying the variety of pieces & styles you’ve been posting lately. It is so good to try new things! :)

    These are very cool Robin! I’ve got some of those Czech beads and have never used them. Then again…I wouldn’t know how to make something like that.
