Knotted Silk Earrings

Naturally, I had to make matching earrings for yesterday's red and black knotted silk lampwork necklace.

I used my magic coffee stirrer again to make sure the silk cord between the 2 jet bicones at the top of each earring was the same length. I like this alternative to headpins, because the earrings have so much more mobility. I may just have to make more earrings like this!

Beautiful earrings to go matching the very beautiful,long beads' rope.Good idea! Have You got more of them?If so-make the bracelet.It ould be the prettiest set of this kind I've seen so far.Fine shapes of the beads and the nice color,also the beauty of composition make this set so unique.

I wish I did, Halinka, but I used the last 2 beads for the earrings! I have looked and looked, but I can't find more of these beads!

Cute earrings! I used to wear cute earrings. J. C. Herrell makes similar beads. Of course, her beads are quite expensive. I have a small collection of her beads and she is a technical master.
