New Pierced Earrings

I finished these earrings the other night. I was working on them for the Thursday Sweet Treat theme "Whirling Colors in Mid Flight". Unfortunately, due to an extremely crazy week I never got them submitted in time. 

I've used the teardrop beads before, but this time I turned them upside down. This provided a whole new design direction. These are bead embroidered pierced earrings. The gray teardrop shell bead is surrounded by seed beads in cream, gold, and purple. The earrings are also embellished with purple jasper beads and Swarovski crystals. Shell fringe hangs from the bottom. The pierced earrings are backed in black ultrasuede. The posts are sterling silver plated.  

If you'd like to see what other people submitted for the "Whirling Colors in Mid Flight", you can check them out on the Thursday Sweet Treat blog.


  1. These are beautiful, I have recently started doing a lot of bead embroidery myself, and I also do not sketch anything. The beads determine the design, and I let it flow as it will. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pieces, they are an inspiration.

  2. Oh, Jodi - these are amazing! They are crying out to be worn for a fabulous night out on the town :-)
