In one of my previous posts, I did mention about using 2 different techniques (in fact a couple of posts) in jewelry making.
I would love to show you my latest pair of handmade earrings which I have made by combining 2 different jewellery making techniques of crocheting and beading
Firstly the center piece of dark pink crocheted and beaded earrings is crocheted. Here I have used coffee colored crocheting thread.
Then glass pearls and seed beads are used to bead around the center piece.
