My mom just loved her bracelet and earrings and they looked great on her! So we were knitting away and she says "oh I found some more beads" (she 'gave up' beading for paper arts) and she then pulls out this huge carrying case loaded with all kinds of beads - all color coordinated! It was like Christmas!
Here it is opened - its huge!
Just one of the 4 compartments - this one is all earth tones and black/white. Awesome.
The other compartments are filled with pinks/purples, greens and blues.
All different shapes and sizes. Such fun!
But here's the 'catch':
She then pulls out some necklaces that she made and asks me to make her some earrings to go with them.
. . . . . Of course I will - just as soon as I get better at it.
I worked up this pair from an earring pattern on Auntiesbeads.com. The directions were very precise and easy to follow and all the earring supplies needed are listed right under the instructions.
I am really bad at the whole loop making wire wrapping bit. I love the earrings themselves, its the workmanship that could use some help.
Luckily my mom told me she's not in any hurry, because it may be awhile until I get the technique under control.
