Manisha Earring — Swarovski
Intricately woven and colorful invoking thoughts of sultry nights on the subcontinent. At least that is what I was going for when I stitched these. Dress up a simple black dress or wear with a t-shirt and feel like royalty.
I begin with the top diamond shape using Japanese glass seed beads. I finish the last corner with an unusual “Peacock Eye” Swarovski crystal. Then I start on the bottom 3/4 circle, again in seed beads and small faceted green Czech beads for texture. I attach it to the diamond and finish with Czech glass beads around the bottom for an rich look.
VERY light weight for the size, after all it’s glass and a whole lot of thread. 3 inches from the top of the hook to the bottom and 1.75 across at the widest point
