A customer requested some long (5-6 inches) dangly earrings using porcupine quills rather than the standard glass bugle beads cuz the glass beads made the earrings much to heavy to wear. She sent me a sketch of what she had in mind and viola!! several pairs of long dangly earrings were created!!
NOTE: The customer "Jana" is now pictured wearing the earrings above, read her comments below. Darn-nation, don't they look fab on her, or is it that Jana that makes the earrings look fab........oh well, let's face it, Jana is FAB, and MY earrings are just a great accent!! Yeee-hah!
The top is done in tubular peyote with the black and white beads being glass size 14/0 round Japanese beads. The turquoise beads are size 13/0 Charlotte Cut glass beads. The brown tips have been cut off the genuine porcupine quills, but what I love about this particular pattern array is that the black beads give the illusion that the natural brown tips are still present!! The 10 strands of fringe on each earring are accented with genuine turquoise gemstone chips.
These earrings are 6 1/4 inches long and are hung from sterling silver plated fish hook ear wires. I can convert these to clip-on, posts, and lever backs in your choice of metals upon request.
Also, don't forget you can custom order a similar pair in colors of your choice, just contact Sunshine for your custom order needs.
Customer comments: "Sunshine! I love them all!!!! Thank you so much! You did an absolutely wonderful job! I can guarantee you that my girlfriends are going to want a pair! I will have my husband take a picture of me in them and send it to you. I couldn’t be happier! You did a beautiful job! I can’t decide if I like the black, white and blue or the multi colored ones the best! My daughter (12 years old) wants you to make her a shorter version of the multi colored ones. Thanks again Sunshine! You are so talented!!!" From Susan: Sunshine, I cannot tell you how very happy I am with my new EARRINGS… THEY ARE SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
