Beading time is sparse right now but I had immediately envisioned these babies in some sparkly dangly earrings to wear New Year's Eve, and since it'll be here in 5 minutes I decided last night to at least get started and make a couple of leaves before calling it a day.
As you can see, that plan didn't work out too well.
I was up until 2 am.
And it was totally worth it.
I took those pics too early this morning
to have adequate light,
so here's one that better shows
the color and finish of the beads.
Each complete earring
weighs 1/2 of 1 ounce.
It's like wearing air.
