My younger sister Theresa is a very talented seamstress, and has made clothing for her family members for years. I was especially enthralled with some of the ethnic fabrics she was using when making 'dashikis', scarves, and traditional African tam hats and caps. The colors and patterns were very bright and vivid and I was inspired!! I also LOVE the challenge of making a matching or coordinated pattern. This particular fabric inspired several different patterns for earrings and a lapel pin.
These are earring inspiration #3 weaved in flat vertical peyote with size 15/0 glass Japanese Hex beads with fringe accents of 2mm glass fringe drop beads. I can convert these earrings to clip-on or posts upon request.
I also have a matching scarf (thin width with red fringe) and a African tam (similar to a pill box style) hat (size small). Scarf is $12.00 and the Hat is $12.00. Contact Sunshine if you are interested in purchasing either of those to go along with the earrings.
SOLD including the hat and scarf
This is Vivian wearing the whole ensemble. Doesn't she look great!! She was drawn to the Red Bird set as her dearly departed had a Red Cardinal as a spirit guide.
"When I wear these redbird items, I feel very regal, royal perhaps, and they make me think of Africa...I feel so grateful. These are real treasures that I will care for as good friends,"...Vivian
