Okay so I decided to try my hand at this peyote stitch because I really love these kinds of earrings. So this first pair is my absolute favorite.. I usually wear browns and not much color but these make me feel so alive!!

They were the second pair I have ever made so I was so proud. But some strands fell off because I used really bad string, now I am using really good bead string. You can't really tell though when I am wearing them. Oh and the beads at the bottom were from a very old necklace that broke. And the beads are so amazing that I thought, Okay I have to use these RIGHT NOW!

These earrings I made with these really good Japanese seed beads that were kind of expensive but they really look so pretty and uniform. I used a random pattern I found by google searching!!




Let me know what you think!!

I love the fringe and the way the colors line up. Do the glass beads at the bottom make them heavy? The turtles are precious too.
