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.
She had this animal striped material that couldn't quite be categorized as being 'tiger' or 'zebra' striped, it was a bit of a combination of both. This particular fabric inspired several different patterns for earrings and lapel pins/brooches.
These earrings are done in colors and zebra/tiger striped pattern to match the fabric. I can make these with or without fringe. Weaved in flat vertical peyote with size 15/0 glass Japanese Hex beads with fringe accents of 3mm gold glass bugle beads. I've also done these with a 3mm black oat fringe anchor bead. I can convert these earrings to clip-on or posts upon request.
Even though this particular set of earrings has been SOLD, please don't forget that you can contact Sunshine for any or your custom order needs.
I also have a matching scarf, and a African/American hat, and a wrap around mini skirt in this material, contact Sunshine if you are interested in purchasing any of those other items to go along with these earrings.
I love them! They are extremely lightweight, very beautiful. Many
compliments when I've worn them...
