Fairy Flutter (left) & Peek-a-Boo Teardrops (right)

No matter what fashion has dictated through the years, earrings have always played a large part in most women’s wardrobes. Earrings have been a way to wear small pieces of art in your ears as a statement of a persons taste.

These are two distinctly different styles of earrings. The first pair is called Fairy Flutter (shown on left in photo above), as the little wing shapes flutter and swing from a chain when worn. This style is made using a Netting technique and lots of fringe embellishing. The second pair of earrings is called Peek-A-Boo Teardrops (shown at right in photo above). As this lovely teardrop shape swings, the teardrops show a bit of the wearer’s neck through the opening of the shape. This design is also articulated so the teardrop swings from an inverted heart shaped base for a very attractive look. Made using a Netting and embellishing technique along with Flat Peyote stitch, this design offers a lot of possibilities.

Skill level: Intermediate.
