Since I don't wear holiday earrings year round, this week will be designs that are appropriate year round.
I think when I make these up, I'm going to use a few shades of pink shaded where the white is, and black for the outline. Make them in whatever colors you'd like. I'd love to see examples!
I'll post a picture of these later today!
The knots were done similar to the snowflakes, I used the same graph, and did the loops first as a solid shape, then added the crossovers.
Examples beaded by Marilyn G.
As a gift for Marilyn G. Day 12's pattern is my attempt at a gecko.
This earring is a bit bigger then the rest, it's 6 beads wider then the snowflakes or the roses. It's meant for fancier occasions.
I love knots, and really recommend Aon Celtic Art for learning how to draw them. Cari Buziak has animated knot drawing lessons, free clip art, and even a lovely bracelet pattern for free, also search for Cari Buziak's patterns for sale at Bead-Patterns.com
