Kit - Southwest Sunset Earrings
I have been showing my Tucson Vista Necklace all over the place since the publication came out. It is a conversation starter - and a show stopper - for sure. After having several requests to make a simplified version of that piece that could be worn more casually, I came up with a simple necklace design and then realized that no set is complete without a pair of fabulous earrings. Enter the Southwest Sunset earrings.
If you have never worked with SuperDuos to create beaded bezels for Swarovski rivolis and you are intimidated by the scope of the Tucson Vista necklace, the Southwest Sunset earrings project is a great place to start. A free, downloadable PDF is included with the purchase of the kit. There is a photo for each step, but I recommend having knowledge of working with a needle and thread as certain basic techniques are not fully explained.
What's included in the kit:
- Swarovski 12mm Rivolis
- SuperDuos in my Southwest Sunset color palette
- Rizos to create the fringe
- Miyuki 11/0 Seed Beads in Gold
- Jump Rings
- Ear Wires
What's not included, but necessary for completion of the project:
- 6LB Beading Thread (I use WildFire)
- Size 11 Beading Needles
- Chain Nose Pliers
