So, I took a wonderful earring-making class last night. There is an adorable beadshop about 30 minutes east of where I live called Simply Strung. My instructor (Kindra) was just excellent – sweet, articulate, funny… and exacting. Just made to order. Her instructions were clear and her teaching style was really effective. Anyway, here are my first earring attempts. They are displayed in the order of instruction. Kindra made the first one alongside with me, then talked me through its mate, plus the second pair and start of the third. For the last (sixth) earring, I was on my own.
I also re-worked one of my earlier bracelets. I think it’ll work nicely with the earrings in the first picture, no? 😀
I like the beads of the first pair of earrings, very nice work! And yes…they would go great with the bracelet ~ love the clasp on the bracelet!
Thankies! Can’t wait to make more!
Oooo, lovely! Now I know who to come to for tips! 😉 I’ve been wanting to learn beading and am hoping to make some as Christmas gifts…once I get up the courage to buy the beads!
LOL! I just realized with a shock that I haven’t beaded anything (excluding a repair here and there) in almost a year.
Have fun shopping, and check out Artbeads.com. Great combo of value and variety. : )
