I suppose we all have a "goto" pattern. This one is mine. I can carry it in a pocket and it takes only one shuttle. I am trying to develop a good way to do 2 shuttles with it. More on that if it works.
I showed you the earrings I was making for a couple of friends at the hair palace. Now I need 2 more for the doctor's office. This is the first pair. I keep trying new bead combinations, especially for the center bead. I just have to put the wires on the second one and done!
When I work this pattern, I like to be organized. I will make sure I have all my materials first. I found some boxes at Hobby Lobby that just fit the bill. I put a right and a left set of wires in the top right and left compartments, some seed beads I will need, the beads for the center go in the bottom right, and the shuttle can go where the seed beads are. Sometimes I will put the seed beads in the top middle. The separators in the box go all the way to the inside of the lid so the seed beads cannot spill over. One rubber band for security and away we go.
