Arabian Nights

Arabian Nights
I have been really enjoying etching using some lovely digital damask patterns from Aesthetic Addiction on Etsy. I was toying with some double-sided folded shapes for earrings, trying to think how I could add hanging loops here and there for beads. I had sketched out this idea and these were my prototype. I was so thrilled that my "thought experiment" worked in real life! The beads are Czech glass--daggers and roundels in a moss green, and lovely lavender nuggets.

Call  me crazy, but I picture them with jeans (or your favorite belly dancing costume):

And when you wear your hair up, these earrings will look exactly the same from the back!

These are sold, but I will be making more and adding them to my Etsy shop. Stay tuned!


  1. What a lovely texture!
    I like it!

  2. These earrings are so fab! I love the window and the etching makes me swoon! I wish that I had talent for doing that! Enjoy the day. Erin

  3. Gorgeous!!! I love the unique shape, and your etching is outstanding!
