And now for something completely different....

These are for the challenge at One Stop Craft to make something Oriental.

Well, I was in town today and in John Lewis I saw some lovely beads which looked quite oriental so I thought 'Why not make some earrings?'.

Of course, never having made any before I had to buy all the findings as well but I had a bit of fun making them and I may even wear them some time, or they'll make a nice gift.


  1. Wow Ali, they are gorgeous and on the first attempt - brilliant

  3. Ali, These are Beautiful.I can't believe these are the first ones you made. I never would have guessed!!!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me such a nice complement. I did'nt know if anyone was really interested in seeing that kind of art.

  7. I like the way that you have taken that photo on some oriental backing paper. It truly shows up your intention of oriental.
