A couple of weeks ago I showed you the astonishing Stars Necklace Mummy made. Well she couldn't just stop at a necklace now, could she?!
Below are two sets of earrings she made using the very same pattern, just with very different looks due to the colour choices, construction and the bead choices.
These grey mismatched earrings are fantastic. Although this photo doesn't quite capture their full glory, the dark insides and light outsides really does stand out against the pale matte grey of the rest of the stars. I love mismatched earrings and these are just brilliantly fun.
Below you can see how very different the stars look when made of delicas. To me they become much more angular and rigid looking (and are a lot more difficult to bead!). They look much more striking in this medium sized star and have definitely lost the dreaminess that the 15s lend. Where the earrings above are bigger and crazier, they are also more ethereal than the smaller, simpler single stars made from delicas.
Both are beautiful, both make me so proud of Mummy for thinking up such a fantabulous pattern, I just think I prefer the dreamy and less angular look that 15s give. Quite a shock, considering that I usually prefer quite vicious and angular looking jewellery!
