Spring Summer 2014 - Brightly Colored Geometric Triangle Earrings

Spring Summer 2014
Brightly Colored Geometric Triangle Earrings are now available in my Etsy shop

Handwoven by me, these beaded triangle earrings were made using peyote stitch, also known as the gourd stitch, an off-loom beadweaving technique. Hand stitching one cylinder seed bead at a time, I prefer to work with Japanese seed beads due to their uniformity in size and shape. The tiny yellow seed beads have a pearl-like appearance, also known as Ceylon finish, giving them a gentle feminine touch. My needle and quality beading thread passes through each bead multiple times, strengthening these geometric earrings for frequent wear. 

The earring wires are rhodium-plated and nickel free, and are suitable for sensitive ears (like myself). If you have very sensitive skin ears, you may want to upgrade to 22k gold plated surgical steel earring hooks (hypo-allergenic). 

These beaded triangle earrings are currently available in 3 colors : Summer Yellow / Strawberry Red / Indigo Purple. They can be customized into other color combinations. From the earring wire to the base of the triangle, these earrings measures 3.5 cm or about 1.4 inches. I am also considering adding a smaller triangle earring, what do you think? :)

These geometric triangle earrings were inspired by the bright cheery colors of flowers, the warm sunshine of summer, and the cool breeze generated from windmills during one beautiful summer in Taiwan where I ventured to Fuguei Cape the most northern tip of the peninsula and scale Hehuanshan the highest mountain I've ever been (and the non-sporty me is afraid of heights!)
