>Name Those Earrings


Today, I did something I rarely do. I took a short break from working on my beaded fire truck. I realized that my friend’s birthday is tomorrow. She likes to wear earrings to work, so I stitched up these hot pink & purple freeform peyote earrings to give to her. They measure about 2″ long x 0.5″ wide. I hope she likes them… The spiral focal beads are made from glass. I picked them up at a bead show a couple of years ago, but unfortunately, I can’t remember who made them. The hot pink beads are size 15’s. I stitched in some size 11 triangles, size 13 charlottes, and a few soldered sterling silver jump rings, as well.

I really enjoy this freeform technique, because the results are always a surprise. These earrings were fun to make, so I’ll probably make a couple more pairs. I’ll add these to my portfolio sometime this week, but right now, I can’t think of name for them…
Any ideas??

Darned if I know where it came from, but I often think of the old songs about cars and racing and hotrods when I look you up (wonder why LOL).
