Sunny Day Earrings

About this design:

On a recent rare sunny day, I got out my bright yellow coin pearls and yellow/white millifiore beads and started making earrings... and came up with lots of variations!


Coin Pearls (yellow and green), millifiore glass beads, African Turquoise rondelles, turquoise-toned glass flower & faceted round beads, button pearls, sterling dotted spacers & rounds, yellow faceted rondelle, glass tubes & rondelles, wire, headpins, earwires, beadcaps.

    These earrings are a few items I cleaned off my workspace by stringing on a headpin… I realized they made a decent earring, so I made a pair with dk Cu wire…

    I hope those bring out the sun for you! All of them are so cute. 8)

    I could probably make up several sets of earrings with the “orphan” beads scattered on my work space. Time to clean up again.

    Cheerful earrings, nice to see something in yellow. Yellows are always difficult to find.

    I love all these earrings, Eeka! Yellow is such a pretty color and I agree that it’s hard to find a nice shade of it. Yours are great! I also love working with coin pearls — so many great colors! :D

    Thanks you for your compliments! Your support is like sunshine for me.

    I don’t make a lot in yellow tones, because they take forever to sell. This past weekend I sold 52 pair of earrings – but did any of these beauties sell? Nooooooooo.

    My special favorite is the one you spotlighted. I love the combination of the coin pearls with that lovely translucent bead. I really like them all.

    These are so bright and cheery and spring-like! I LOVE the yellow coin pearls and they are perfect with the clear millefiori beads. I don’t know why yellow doesn’t sell more, it’s such a happy color! :D
