As soon as I saw the inspiration picture for this month, I knew I wanted to use thread in my earrings.
My two ideas were making tassels or wrapping thread around hoops. Both ideas centered around the rectangular, pressed glass flower beads I got last week. Since I'd never made any, I thought I would try tassels. I still want to try the others with hoops but need to get more of the flower beads or find some similar shaped ones in my bead
Here's what I ended up with after I added the beads to the tassels.
The beads represent the embroidered flowers in the inspiration picture...
and the thread colors of the tassels draw from the embroidery. I really like how they swing and I'll definitely make more in some different colors.
