Tokyo Lantern

Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 hours

Project and Sample by Emily Miller

Mustard is THE color this summer, and add in splashes of gold and multiple finishes…this lantern really glows! With a fringe that’s just to die for, these earrings swing like paper lanterns. An architectural brick stitch base creates the “lantern,” where Emily really pushes the boundaries of brick stitch: mixing multiple sizes, shapes, materials. Skip the fringe for a simpler earring or use a single Lantern as a pendant…the possibilities are limited only by your creativity.
