Sharon had never designed jewelry before and like many beginners, she was a little overwhelmed with the choice of beads at our workshop.

She was persistent though at experimenting. At about the fourth try, she put together this elegant gold foil pair of earrings. The splashes of colour on them give this design an arty feel. She balanced the rectangular shape of the main beads with gold coloured glass cubes. The dangles were then hung on gold-filled ear wires to match.

Sharon so thoroughly enjoyed herself, she flitted about looking at the various pots of beads and plotted more designs. She made more than one item which I will save for another day.
