I decided I would watch some old "Dharma and Greg" videos and make the earrings up myself. As I was nearing the finish to this first pair (see next photo below), it occurred to me that a better finish would be to use the knotting sequence of the "Diamonds" series.
I thought it worked great and went on to try some variations...
First, this pair with a slightly different knotted "diamond" and a slightly different "tail".
Then this pair with slightly different beads...Okay, I was excited now and wondered what this would look like with fringe beads in the "waves".
Then, I thought "What if I make a matching bracelet that includes the "Diamonds" motif instead of the original "Waves" style bracelet? I loved it!:
Two more variations, the second one in photo has bugle beads! I love bugle beads and am always trying to fit them in somewhere...
Then, I wondered if size 6 seed beads would work as well as the fringe beads in the "waves"? The answer is YES! I love these, too. The look sort of "Deco Victorian" to me. My Sweetie especially likes these earrings and the bracelet and necklace that followed.
Lastly, another pair of earrings with size 6 seed beads with a different finish:
Oh, yes! I had so much fun. The "Bead Fever" burned through me for days and I hear my muse calling me back. Gotta go...
By the way, I have begun listing some of these at my ArtFire Studio. And yes, I will eventually write this up - most probably in my forthcoming e-book.
