Each year the Portland Bead Society has a Bead Retreat. Much stuff goes on, and one of the stuffs is workshops given by the participants. It’s a great time to experiment with a new pattern or technique. Teresa Shelton gave this earring class and since then I swear I have seen everyone wearing these pretty hoops. A clever peyote based beadweaving technique using seed beads and firepolish crystals. They stitch up quick too so many pairs can be made with scraps of stash.
This pair is created with various sizes of seed beads and fire polished crystals.
They measure 1 3/8th across and 1 1/4 down.
