Diamond Earrings II

Another version of the diamond earrings designed by Julia Gerlach. The pattern is in Beadwork magazine, February 2016. You can see the other one I made HERE.



Materials I used:

- Japanese bugle bead, 6mm, color: creamed coffee; store
- Japanese bugle bead, 6mm, color: metallic bronze; store
- Toho seed bead, 8/0, color: gold lustered green tea (code: 457); store
- Toho seed bead, 11/0, color: higher metallic plum iris (code: 509); store
- Fireline, 0.18mm diameter, white;
- Earwires fishhook, antique copper;
- Head pins, 2", 22 gauge, antique copper; store

I chose a white thread because I thought it would pop up the color of the transparent green beads. It worked as I expected, but the downside of it is that the thread seems much visible to my taste. I believe the black color would've blended better.
