Bead Table Wednesday at Bay Moon Design

Cobalt Blue Earrings by BayMoonDesign available on Etsy
Welcome to another Bead Table Wednesday!  I am pleased to report that I have a new pair of earrings on my table this week.  This new pair was challenging.  I went through several tries before I got the design right!  The placement of the hole in the ceramic was a challenge that I need to conquer because I knew I wanted to connect it to an eyepin with a bead on it.  I thought about using Irish waxed linen, silver jump rings, silver wire and a few other possibilities.  I finally decided to use some flat sided sterling silver wire that I have been hoarding.  I am pleased with the results.  I think that blue usually looks best with silver so that was an easy decision.   I also happened to have 2 of these cobalt blue vintage beads left from repurposing an old pair of clip on earrings from the 1950's.  I love how the cobalt blue beads accentuate the blue in Marsha Neal's gorgeous ceramics. 


  1. Just gorgeous! I can see how they would be a challenge though.

  2. Beautiful pair, Kathy... sometimes it is GOOD to be challenged :)
