These earring designed by Fernando DaSilva make themselves if you have three products.
Earring wire + Dazzle-it faux suede tassel + Dazzle-it pastella beads.
Earlier this month I posted the first of ten earrings designed by Fernando Dasilva and inspired by Spartacus. He dubbed them “Gladiator Style.” Here is a closer look at one set using the fabulous photos taken by our in-house photographers.
The “365 EARRINGS” special issue of Bead Style Magazine is already out and Metal Complex has a two page spread with earrings designed by Fernando Dasilva using our selection of metal blanks in different shapes and finishings.
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.
