Elphaba's Earrings

Have you heard that the musical Wicked will be coming to town in November?  Well we're already getting inspired in preparation for it!  As you may or may not know, Elphaba (AKA The Wicked Witch of the West) has different characteristics in the musical versus the books but one of the constants is her green skin and I took my inspiration from that with various shades of our new Miyuki seed beads.  I wanted something beautiful and dramatic so I wired size 8 and 11 seed beads to different sizes of Quick Link elements and then  I wire wrapped them to different lengths of chain with fire polish beads.  Of course you can adjust this to your taste in color and length but it's a fun pair of earrings none the less!  I'll be demoing this at our Mapunapuna Bead Shop on Saturday August 4 and 11 starting from 2PM in case you want to ask questions so I hope to see you there!
