Polka Stacks

Poor Keirsten is under the weather (get well soon, Kiersten!), so you've got me again today.  I've been making lots of these wire-wrapped stack earrings recently.

These, as you'll probably recognise, were made with a pair of Bo Hulley's polka dot rounds.  It's funny; I've had them for ages.  I was lucky enough to be paired with Bo in a Secret Santa swap that was run in a beady facebook group the Christmas before last. (Yep, I was very chuffed!)  I received four pairs of them in my parcel. 'Perfect', I thought, 'I'll be making earrings with these'.  However, despite taking them out of my stash numerous times, I kept failing to find something a bit different to do with them.  Now, finally, I've found a design with which I'm happy.  So much so, I've made a couple of pairs.

Am I allowed to share two pairs of earrings in the one post?  I'll blame it on being a newbie!  I have one pair of polka dot beads left.  I reckon I know what I'll be doing with them... This second pair has sold but the first pair are available here in my Etsy shop.

Bye for now, Claire
something to do with your hands

  7. love the design.I have several pairs of stacked earring that just scream FIX ME . I had forgotten how much wrapping can add to a simple stack of beads. Thanks for the reminder.I think I will be adding wire wraps to them.
    great colour mix as well. and two pairs in one post? no problem, just more eye candy for us readers.
