Short Version......

I recently made some earrings using porcelain beads, metal beads and seed beads.  They were long........

Marti Conrad came up with a great idea to shorten them........so I did.  I like them better short, but then I prefer short earrings.  In a spirit of "waste not, want not" the wire cut from the long sides were fashioned into dangles.

This pair is made with Ingrid Mueller's "stoney" beads.  I love the matte glaze that she used on these.  These "Beaded Buckets" are listed HERE.

This version is just 2-5/8" long

Sophie, I am still planning a discussion on crimp covers.

I love this shorter version. It just seems to pull in the colors wonderfully closer together. They are magically striking.

I love these--themetal and beads work so well together, and I just love the earthy--sort of ancient look of them!
