As I mentioned before, 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 is a 'sheer' type fabric, I don't know what it's called exactly, but it's like a 'gauze'....very sexy and sensual! The scanner didn't give this fabric the same 'light' penetration, therefore the earrings may not appear to be in the same color scheme, but they truly are very closely matched.
I also have a wide scarf with ultra suede fringe, a scrunchie woman's African tam size med to med/lrg and a leather Ladies High Crown Tam/Cap lined with the tiger print fabric that go with these earrings. Just contact Sunshine if you are interested in any of these other items.
These earrings are weaved in flat vertical peyote with size 15/0 glass Japanese Hex beads in a standard diamond shape without fringe.
