13.6.08 Evolution of Flat Circular Pinwheel Earrings




A dear friend kindly taught me the technique of the flat circular pinwheel inspired by June Huber's Peyote Pinwheel Earrings.
I started the first pink pinwheel with 11/0 JP SB, 11/0 JP triangles, 6/0 CZ SB and 6/0 CH SB. Though I made some mistakes I was curious to see how this pinwheel evolves. I finished the pink pinwheel and started a new one with different sizes and colors. This time, I took turquoise SB; 15/0 JP SB, 11/0 CZ SB, 11/0 JP SB and 8/0 JP SB. It looked good and I kept on beading another pinwheel for the second earring. When I saw that 2 pinwheels together gives also a very nice result for an earring , I just sewed them together to these new earrings with a shape that reminds me of an arabesque motive.
Thank you very much my dear friend for the motivation, inspiration and explanations!
