On The Bead Table :: Suburban Girl Studio

One of my new favorite art bead designers is Diana from Suburban Girl Studio. Just look at how fun these sweet flower patterned porcelain charms are! She's not new to making beads, it's me who has been drooling over her work! 

They remind me of a sea shell print, and I wanted to carry that beach boho feel throughout the earrings. 

I used hemp cord to wrap the wire loop on the top of the bead. Then used the hemp to string onyx rounds, which give the pair a little 'swing' to them. The finishing touch is a large silver patterned post that I think also have that boho look. You'll find these listed in my Etsy shop.

I picked up quite a few items from Diana's shop, so there will be more projects coming. These earrings are my 7th pair in the AJE Earring Challenge (but who's counting!)
