If you've never considered triangular beads before, perhaps these two pairs of earrings might encourage to get some in and play with them.

I made the left pair using large transparent purple beads. The right pair was made by Anne at a beading party. She liked my pair as well as the triangular mother of pearl shell beads she found in my collection. As you can see by placing just the right sort of metal bead with her design, Anne has given her creation an Art Deco feel or even a futuristic look.

If we had extended the earring by adding more beads to the top, we would definitely have gotten an arrow head design. Placing the triangle with the point up is another variation to try. Or even butting two triangles together on their bottom edges would result in a diamond shape.
