1  Victorian style earrings with vintage stones and bead woven bezels in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TheMermaidsDen on: December 07, 2008 04:01:49 AM
Here are some earrings I made recently. They have vintage glass stones and I made netted bezels to go around them. I had been making pieces like this using bead embroidery, but then the backs of the stones got covered up, and they look so much better when the light can shine through them. Let me know what you think of them!

And a close up:

And what they look like from the back:

EDIT: I just posted a reply at the end, but I guess I'll add it here, too. There's a tutorial on how to add the beads around the edges in my blog: http://themermaidsden.blogspot.com/

I've been doing some embroidered jewelry lately (not sure if I should post this to jewelry, too), and I really like the idea of wearable embroidered jewelry. Here's what I've made so far:

It was fun making them and TheMermaidsDen seemed to like them Smiley

Seems to like them? I love them! And I'm glad you like my stuff, too. Everything posted here looks great, actually, though what I got is particularly nice.

I'm glad you took a picture of it all together; I didn't think to do that. Here are some close ups/details just because I feel like sharing them.
