Chicken Earrings



I've got a friend who loves chickens, well, to be more accurate, a bunch of friends who love beaded chickens or chicken beads. I graphed out a couple chickens one day while I was thinking of her.
The pin above was made like the friendship swap pins I posted a while back. I couldn't remember if she wore earrings, plus I didn't have cylinder beads to make earrings in and using size 11 beads it was really a bit big for an earring. She wears the pin frequently.
Here's the graph for you to enjoy. The first one done with size 15 or size 11 cylinder beads would be a very petite earring.

Suggested colors- ceylons, shiny opaque colors, although transparent beads are great too, silver lined beads might be too shiny.
Then just because I enjoyed the idea of chickens so much, I graphed out these two earring designs too.


Pins or earrings with chickens would make a nice gift to people you know who keep chickens or collect them. Since chickens are being allowed in more and more cities, more people are keeping them. I wonder if I could trade a pair of chicken earrings for fresh eggs?

I hope you enjoy them, as usual, I would love to see pictures!

For more information about doing odd count peyote stitch, check out this tutorial. I frequently work brick stitched earrings in odd count peyote because it works up so fast.
For brick stitch instructions, this alien earring article explains basic brick stitch.

I also have an e-book available in Kindle format with several graphs and complete brick stitch instructions. Click on the image for more information. All the graphs are optimized for a regular sized Kindle and are very clear on both sizes.
