Shaitana Earrings

Toward the end of last year, I was asked to teach a class on how to bead a rivoli using tubular peyote.  The class was just supposed to be a basic technique class.  I don't know about you but I like to be able to "do" something with what I learn when I learn a new technique.  So I came up with these earrings so that they had something to "do" with the beaded rivoli if they wanted to. 

I have to say that I really like this pattern.  I have already made several pair of these earrings to go with some of the different jewelry pieces I have made.  I haven't really made many beaded earrings so I really like that I have this pattern to use.

I just love how the rivoli reflects back the beadwork!!  Anyway.... I hope you are having a good weekend and if you are in the northeast stuck in from the snow, I hope you are having a good beady time.

Hi Nancy
These earrings are just so beautiful! Your intricate bead work just amazes me! Do you sell your finished pieces anywhere?
