Hi there
I'm a new forum member from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. Came to this site by way of lupinbunny's blog.

I thought I would share some earrings I made. Made them for a wedding in Nov 2006 in which I was wearing a black dress so I wanted some colour in my jewellery. Here are the finished earrings
and here is me wearing them (with my brother in the pic also) at the wedding

thanks!
I used crimp beads to secure the tigertail but it took a few attempts to get the tigertail to sit properly and as it is they still aren't great. I think I should invest in the tigertail by beadalon that has extra strands and is more bendy like thread.

oohh sorry I misunderstood  Undecided
I just use flat nose pliers to smoosh the crimp flat. I do have crimping pliers/tool too but I find it fiddly and I quite like the look of the flat crips on my work.

they definitely lifted the black dress and i stuck a red flower in my hair too. I was quite pleased. I don't wear a lot of my own stuff - I tend to make it as gifts for others so I was happy it all looked good Smiley
