Our “Name That Design” Beading Challenge in the Beadwork August/September 2016 issue features this beautiful earring design made using a sparkling and blinging, Swarovski crystal button kit from Cyrstaletts. Enter your idea for a name in the comments below by August 18, 2016 for a chance to win your own kit.
The designer behind the earrings, Melinda Barta shares this about her design: “Lately, I’ve been hooked on watching Downton Abbey while I bead, and the show’s setting obviously influenced my design for these ornate earrings! The Crystaletts crystal buttons were perfect for achieving the royal look I was after. Circular peyote stitch made the earrings quick to stitch, and additional rounds of seed beads placed under the Crystaletts buttons keep the crystals faceup.”
This ultra-sparkly kit includes 3mm and 5mm Crystaletts crystal buttons, Crystaletts’ Scarabaeus Micro Linx buttons, and three sizes of silver seed beads.
Three readers also created beautiful designs using this kit. Be sure to check out each of the designs in the current Beadwork issue. Then leave a comment below on the name you feel best suits the earrings by Melinda for your chance to win your own sparkling Crystaletts button kit.
