My husband and I haven’t attended one of his work holiday parties in about 6 years. This year we decided to go and of course, I had to make earrings to go with my dress.
The plan was to use some of my porcelain cabochons but I wasn’t happy with how they came out. I used a pair of onyx cabs instead. I made the earrings over the course of week, spending about an hour each night adding a row at a time.
The seed beads are a mix of aqua, teal, purple, black and green hues. I used black Nymo thread for everything and black ultrasuede on the back. The earwires are niobium (so friendly on my sensitive lobes) and made by Marti Brown.
I’m really pleased with how they turned out! I finally feel like I have a good grasp on backstitch and am ready to move on and try some more advanced techniques.
Are you attending any holiday parties? If so, what jewelry did you make for them?
