It’s a tie!!
According to my poll 40% want me to use my Thrift bin, and 40% want me to use Shell beads. So I started today exploring the Thrift Bin! I’ll make a few from this and the rest from the Shell Bin. 🙂
Searching for paired components was more challenging than I anticipated, but I did find some interesting pieces.
These small water colour canvases were interesting, and so was the earring that was made up of two matching stained glass-esque components.
As you can also see, I started making another earring with cream beads from a bracelet found in the bin, and pearl seed beads from my stash. I was going to attach the water colour canvases to it, but it didn’t work out like I wanted. I’ll just make the beadwoven components an earring on their own.
Only the earwires and wire are new, everything else in these earrings are from the bin.
I strung three pretty aqua wooded beads and four clear acrylic faceted beads on the blue wire, finishing both loops with wraps. Before I wrapped the bottom loop I strung the canvas so that I didn’t have to attach it with a seperate jump ring.
