Herringbone Earrings

I gor invited to a few parties lately and I was always at a loss for what to wear.  I don't have a lot of "prints" in my wardrobe as I tend to gravitate towards plain, single-colour clothes.  The only way I dress up my ensemble is through accessories. 

Similarly, I can "dress up" beads using different materials and patterns.  One of my favourite is the wire-wrapped beads with herringbone pattern.   Below is a tutorial from "beadaholic" that is very basic and easy to follow.

I have most of the materials required including silver wire and the colour beads that will go with my outfit. 

Seed beads, glass beads, pliers, 24 Ga wire, Hook earrings

Although the tutorial only went as far as wrapping the beads in the herringbone pattern....

I decided to jazz up my earrings with chain and silver seed beads to add visual interest and length.

Happy Sunday!
