As Promised…

The tutorial and beading kit for my “Geometric Warped Square Mosaic Drop Earrings” (inspired by vintage patterned tile work and CGB) is finished and listed in my Etsy shop!  The step-by-step tutorial is accompanied by large full-color photos, a color chart...

Another Pair of Warped Square Earrings!

I’ve been busy this past week playing with Geometric Warped Squares once again! Aside from the  influence of several of my favorite beading books (Jean Power’s “Geometric Beadwork”, Diane Fitzgerald’s “Shaped Beadwork”, and...

Happy New Year and…

What better way to start the New Year than with something colorful and sparkly! I’ve just finished this pair of mismatched earrings (I love asymmetry!) composed of oblong, pear-shaped, round, and square cushion-shaped Swarovski crystal stones, 15/0 seed beads, and...

I’ve just finished another pair of geometric warped square (inspired by CGB) arrow-shaped drop earrings using yummy greens, pale purple, and oh, how I love these Swarovski Yellow Opal crystals! I’d previously made a pair of striped earrings that hang...

  My “Geometric Warped Square Arrow” Drop Earrings were such fun to make that I will want to create several more pair in different colors!  I’ve finished the tutorial and assembled several beading kits.  The kit is composed of Delica, seed, and...

Another Take on the Warped Square…

I’m almost finished with my tutorial for the “Geometric Warped Square Arrow Drop Earrings” that were featured in my previous post, but I just had to take a break from proofreading to create another pair that is slightly different. This time...
