Two Tales of Tails
Part 1 of 2

Being creative means opening your mind up to different possibilities and doing things never done before. Sometimes, an idea strikes you when you least expect it. Many of you will recognise this phenomenon when playing with your beads and wire.

Why just use headpins or eyepins? Make that tail a little longer, scroll it or put some bends in it as I did with this pair of earrings. With the right sort of beads, the end result here was an art deco style pair of earrings! It goes to show that it doesn't have to be technically difficult to get an original design.
