Bay of Bengal Earrings


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Created By Brittany Ketcham

Inspired by the cooling waters and lush forests surrounding the Bay of Bengal, this largest bay in the world hugs the vast Indian Ocean and is home to many neighboring cultures. Silver Miyuki seed beads shimmer on waves of Turquoise and Aquamarine, celebrating the lush greens that make up the home to the notorious Bengal Tiger. Learn how to create your very own artisan components, then playfully adorn the edges with silky Chinese knotting cord and bright Miyuki seed beads. Gemstone briolettes (made in India) dance playfully in the sun, capturing the coastal hues of this region.
