Beadwork is making a comeback

Today I worked on something a little different. I had this design in my head this morning for an earring that combined a lot of different techniques, but the most exciting one of them all was beadwork (!!!).

I have done some beadwork here and there for earrings, but as always, they just got too heavy. I also really didn't like how they would connect to other parts of an earring (usually by sewing a loop of beads so that a metal link could fit through), but I think I came up with an idea where I can do it better. Today, I managed to sew a lightweight beaded earring, and I backed it with velvet.


This will be a very short post as I'm kind of tired from all of today's thinking and working out details in my head, but I'm so thrilled to bring beadwork into the equation again. It's been a long time coming.


That is all for tonight. Have a wonderful evening, and thanks so much for reading.

Stay well,

Caitlin
