Square Stitch Earrings: "Agree to Differ"
ARGHH! The tortures of the damned! My camera hates turquoise. Actually, the blue beads are a deep, very shiny turquoise - and what does it give me? Flat blue, that's what. And the "brown" beads are bronze matte metallic with lovely shade differences, but NO, I get brown! When some miracle of light happens, I'll try, try again. (Postscript: HA! The light changed. This is more like it!)
These were just for fun - I love giant earrings & these are 30mm x 70mm (that's nearly an inch and a quarter wide by two and three quarters inches long, for those who don't think in metric). I was tempted to make the same pattern for both, but I overcame the impulse.
