Those of us who subscribe to Beadwork Magazine recently had the latest issue drop through our letter boxes. This issue is a colour special and I was particularly excited to see my Edinburgh beading buddy Jane Lock's beautiful Paisley Drop earrings featured. They are really lovely and if you haven't already got your hands on a copy, I suggest you do! I thought as Russian leaves are something I have never tried, I really should have a go and here is the first one. I love it! So sweet. And don't you just love the colours I've used (if I do say so myself!)? Very 'Last of the Pharaohs'. It took me about 45 mins, in a car driving from Manchester to Sheffield so that probably slowed me down a little. So they are SUPER quick to make! I think once I've made this one's partner, I'll switch around these colours and make a second pair. Great design - thanks Jane!
