I have told you about my friend Erica, the hand spinner and custom dyer of her own yarns. During some e-mail exchanges discussing colors of pink, spring, and paper Japanese Lanterns, I designed a pink representation of a Japanese paper lantern. She thought the earrings needed some company and she sent me this scan of a vest she had made for a color class she had taught. So, with this in mind, we created two more lanterns and viola!!! these great fun earrings were born!!!!
Erica's comments: "... gadzooks..........I think it and it appears. These are darling, fun and yet they are not silly cheapo,.......... These are very very classy. And how did you actually do it so fast? The whole thing is wonderful.......I am not sure when I'll get over shaking my head in amazement.........I love these! I can't believe it!....."
Weaved in flat vertical peyote with size 15/0 glass Japanese Hex beads. The lantern accents include custom made red tassels, frosted tube beads, and wire wrapped glass beads. Though Erica has no intention of wearing these earrings with this knitted color sample vest, it is another example of how you can be inspired for any type of a perfect customized and individualized order.
These earrings are a One-Of-A-Kind creation for Erica. However, reproductions of the 'individual' lanterns can be ordered in your choice of colors. Contact Sunshine for your own custom order desires.
