Story

Ah, what joy there is when you can take a bad tutorial, some ugly beads, and make something that’s wonderful. I’m actually surprised at how much I like these earrings. I’m more than a little proud that I made these materials into something really attractive.

I got the idea for doing these from a tutorial showing how to wrap strands of small beads around larger beads. The earrings they made in the video were really ugly, and their technique seemed awkward, but I got inspired all the same. I took to my material bins and decided to give it a go.

Honestly, I used the red acrylic beads and red wire because it was something I’d never done before and I didn’t want to waste good materials on what might be a flop. It did take me some time to get the hang of the technique, especially since I basically had to figure it out on my own. I really had to mess with the gold beads to get them to stay between the red ones and not spin around to the inside of the ring. When I got to hoop two I was moving much faster and it all set exactly where I wanted it to. It took me 75 minutes to finish the pair. The dangle in the middle wasn’t part of my original plan, but I thought that big hoop looked so empty. I figured it would be a lot prettier with something dangling in the middle.

In the end, I looked at the pair, and I was really taken by how pretty they were. I would actually wear these if I looked good in red! I was so happy. I love it when things like that happen. I’ve actually made and sold a lot of things that were originally just a test of technique or materials. The Muses smile on me like that sometimes. *grins*
