Beaded Jewelry Design #5: Hydrangea Earrings - by Kelli Burns
One of the easiest ways to create floral earrings is to use flower-shaped beads like the crystals in Kelli Burns's Hydrangea Earrings. Make them pop with pink or find floral components in a range of other colors, including neutral shades of gray, brown and navy. Using florals in neutral shades is a way to up the sophistication level and create seed bead jewelry that is perfect in conservative settings.
