A few weeks ago I finally sat down and dug through my bead stash to make a rather belated birthday present for my sister (I figure the lateness of my present is balanced by the fact that I put together a made to order gift). She was in need of some turquoise blue earrings after losing one side of an existing pair she owned and was also interested in multicoloured earrings to match with a variety of outfits.
To be honest, the hardest part about putting together the turquoise pair was choosing the right beads for the project. I went for a simple design because sometimes it's nice just to go back to basics. The second pair required some thought to put together a multicoloured pair of earrings which wouldn't look like they were made from whatever leftover beads could be found. Thankfully, my sister LOVES her new earrings. What do you think?
