Green and blue earrings

These are based on the same basic design as the previous post. This pair uses hand dyed thread (Celery), blue and green glass beads, plus "embellishments".
A few rings are thrown off the mock ring, with extra-long picots covered with beads. Beads dangling from a long picot at the bottom. I just love that fire-polished 8mm round bead in the center! Those are a little hard to find, but I've seen a few in some shops on Etsy.

Wow. These really POP with color, and in a very elegant way. They are awesome.

Lovely, but no matter how many beads I have, and I have A LOT,I never have the right beads for the job.

Those are gorgeous.

LOL, I have trouble finding the right beads, too! And then I get an idea that would use a bead that should be common and easy to find - check all through my fat bead catalog, search the Internet, and can't find that color and size of bead anywhere....

You did a great job, as usual. These are lovely.

These are so pretty! I love blue and green together! Now, if I could only wear earrings...

Absolutely beautiful. Your comments make them sound so simple. It's the thinking up things so elegant that's hard.

Thanks, Marty, Pamela, tattingchic, and tattycat.
Diane, do you care at all for clip-ons? I have some filigree clip-on backs in silver or gold plated. Otherwise, maybe a pendant or necklace of the same colors. I think it would be very striking. Now, if only I could get some of these ideas written down....

I LOVE these - fantastic pattern and the colors are gorgeous. How about a hand dyed thread in these colors? :-)

Marilee, how I wish i could wear clip-ons! I inherited my Grandma Morris's chubby ears... it's true, I have very chubby ears... the better to hear you with, my dear! I can't take the pinching. But, I do love wearing your pieces as pendants (I have two that I've kept; the others I've given away as presents). I also love to wear pins!

HDT in these colors? Well, Elizabeth, let's see, I already have a blue green pastel, so maybe I could do a blue green bright.
Diane, pendants are good, and they're fun to make.
Pins, well, I just don't know where to put the pin.
