Beading class, making starflower stud earrings

SONY DSC

Last week, I opened my beading class and we made starflower stud earrings. I was thinking to make a something easy accessory for the beginner and then came up that idea. I used Czech and Japanese seed beads and Swarovski pearl for flowers and sterling silver glue-on earring posts and sterling silver earring backs for findings. We had a fun time:) Hope my students enjoy their earrings this bright summer season!

今月のビーズ教室は、星のような形のお花のスタッド・イヤリングを作りました。しばらくの間ずっと、何か簡単で初心者でも作れるものを…と考えて試作品を作っていて、ようやく形となり、先週に教室を開きました。

今回生徒のみんなと話していて面白かったのは、ビーズの色選びをする際に、どの色が良いか旦那さんに相談するんだけど、いつも何となく自分が心に決めていた色とは別の色を旦那さんが選ぶから、少しがっかりするということでした。「だったら聞くなよ!」と私も夫からつっこまれるんですが、なぜか毎度意見を聞いています。インターナショナルで共通してる事って、案外あると感じています。
