Only 11° seed beads.

All started when I buy a little book of patterns, and pattern after patterns that I don't like, I view this: a peacock patterns, that immediately I felt I can embellish with rich fringe: so, this started my addiction to make Peacock earrings.

Thank You!

The book is "For the love of beading" volume 1, author Sharon Nylander.

In this pic, the latest couple of earrings I've made.

These are very pretty, but the second ones made me drop my jaw (literally) when I scrolled down to them.  For a moment, I thought they were actual peacock feathers.  Really well done.

Hi Paka, it's the same for me. I suppose it's the metallic sheen ofr green, blue and brown that mimic a real Peacock feather.

Have a nice day.

These are stunning! Gorgeous dangly earrings. I love all the colour combinations but especially the "true" peacock colour-way.

 

For Untomom2003 (hope I've got that right!) who wanted the book, I've found it on http://www.needleworkbooks.com/bookdetails.asp?bkid=1577507 and it's only $7.50 dollars with postage and packing if you're in the U.S. (I'm not and it's another $10 to the U.K).

 

Thanks for showing this.
