Name the Earrings Challenge design by Megan Lenhausen
Megan shares: “I’m naturally drawn to large statement earrings, specifically with a teardrop shape. With that in mind, I took advantage of the painted drop’s silhouette by joining a cubic–right angle-weave strip to mimic the shape. I used light purple FireLine thread to stitch the strip, adding a subtle pop of color peeking through the pale green seed beads. The prized drop dangles in the center of the earring, and I embellished each earring with a mixture of rounds, intentionally placed for an ombré effect.”
From inside the Beadwork issue, here are the other designs also made using this bead collection.
