I have decided that I really do need a mannequin head in my studio so that I can photograph earrings.
This post was difficult to photograph because the earring are very long. I need a model.
The earrings were inspired by this photograph Lilla at John Bead emailed me.
When John Bead told me that I would be working with Goat Suede I didn’t know what to expect. Goat suede is very well known in the book binding world as the best leather to work with. I had no idea it was so soft. And lightweight too!
Using a Dazzle-It Twisted needle I was able to pass the suede right through crimp ends.
The new crimp ends at John Bead are so decorative that I like to use them in my designs where they will be seen.
Choker/ribbon ends are the perfect way to attach these strips of suede. Three strands of goat suede cord fit perfectly.
