DUCHESS EARRINGS
Workshop Length: Half day class
Skill Level: Intermediate
Techniques:
• Peyote
• Bezel
• Braiding

Dimensions: 1.5” long, 0.75″ wide

A modern pair of earrings is woven from a dimensional hollow base which provides structure while keeping them light for comfort when worn. A sparkling zircon setting at the center provides a surface for a braid woven in two colors which secures a free floating circle of pearls with a French ear wire.

Learn to stitch a dimensional base by shaping with peyote stitch and building up a bezel to secure the zircon setting which is snapped together. Use a braiding technique to create a two-color interlaced weave to hold the pearls in place and also attach a French ear wire with chain.
