Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge: Day 13...
Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge. The prompt was to create some jewelry featuring Swarovski crystal bicones.
For this creative exercise, I decided to use four different colors of Swarovski crystal 4mm bicones: Mint Alabaster, White Opal, Rosewater Opal, and Caribbean Blue Opal. I used Right Angle Weave to create the four-sided, beaded cylinders. I reinforced the stitches with extra Fireline. Then I strung one Caribbean blue bicone, the beaded column, and another Caribbean blue bicone onto a balled headpin and created a wire-wrapped dangle that I attached to a sky-blue niobium earwire. The effect is a pair of very "blingy" earrings!
