Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Teardrop Earrings

Inspired by the Snaky Bracelet design from Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy, author Christina Larsen’s Teardrop Earrings were the first kumihimo earrings she ever created.

She wanted to use the beads in the design in a way that would naturally achieve a curve within the braid, creating the teardrop silhouette. Fashion your own teardrop earrings with the same materials from the Snaky Bracelet to create a matching set!
