I have a new tutorial out in BeadStyle magazine, the September 2009 issue, which should actually be on news stands now or in the very near future. The actual tutorial example is NOT mine, and was created by the BeadStyle team, but all the other design examples are mine.
This is one of the lovely things about sending in a tutorial to BeadStyle -- they do the photography and the writing. But I'm a bit anal about things like wire wraps and design and stuff like that. Anyway, these earrings are easy as pie to make, use Tierracast components (which can be purchased wholesale at Tierracast.com or many retail online bead stores) and are open to ALL kinds of interpretations.
They're great for fall, but a lot of people wear beige and khaki for summer, and tans look great with those colors, so these earrings would be just perfect with that sort of wardrobe!
The rings are large, about 1.25" in diameter, and I have them in silver-tone as well. I'll get these on the web site asap, but they can be custom-designed just for you, too!
Grab the magazine, and enjoy!
