Waxed Linen Cord Blog Hop - Final Design

So, the waxed linen cord blog hop definitely took me out of my comfort zone, but I did have a lot of fun working with (what is for me) a new material.  I used two boro lampwork beads from Stoney Marie Designs, two of my dangle lampwork beads, some czech glass, and brass rondelles.   I had a lot of fun pulling together a tray of great beads from my bead stash and mixing and matching the materials.
I love the little knotted ends, so I wanted to make sure that the design had a lot of those.  This was the most fun part of the design for me.

Below is a list of all the designers who participated!

Hi Heather, your earrings are beautiful. You chose great color and the brass pairs well with the beads. I like fringe too.

Very pretty! Waxed linen is such a great material for earrings since it doesn't add weight and has nice movement to it.

Heather, your earrings are really cute! I think we can all agree, everyone loves those little beaded dangles! I know those get me every time. It's like "Put a Bird on it". "Put waxed linen beaded dangles on it!" Everyone will go crazy for it. LOL.
