These earrings are gorgeous. Another one to put on my list!!! When am I going to have the time to complete all these projects. I can't see the fireline at all. We always see our mistakes but no-one else does.
Thank you so much for sharing these instructions. What a lovely pair of earrings. I can't wait to make myself a pair.
Pat - 2 years ago I bought french wire in sterling, gold-filled and copper, and promptly lost them in my bead muddle. I'll definitely use them when I find them!
Lyn, and Leanna - Thank you. I hope you enjoy your earrings. :)
Wow, I really like how those turned out! Too bad about the oopses! Where did you find the pattern? Cute!
I'm new at beading, a beginner. I love this pattern. It is gorgeous. Could I make a necklace or bracelet with this pattern?
why this is not looking good
Your problem could be the beads you are using. I can see several different size and shapes of your seed beads. If you are using Czech seeds, you need to cull (sort) them using just one size and shape. This will help your design look more uninformed. Or you could splurge on Japanese seed beads which are much more uniform in size and shape. You may have to occasionally cull a few, but usually less than a dozen.
Hope this helps you out. Have fun.
