Eclipse Earrings and Bracelet or Choker Pattern
EXCLUSIVE Pattern of the Month Design: The Eclipse was inspired by the recent total solar eclipse on July 11, 2010, over Easter Island. They say this is the first time in 1400 years the total solar eclipse has occurred exactly over Easter Island and that the Stone faces on Easter Island may have been erected to watch for the next time the eclipse would come to them! I dont know about you, but that seems pretty significant to me, so I thought about it and decided to create a design in honor of the Easter Island total solar eclipse.
The earrings and bracelet measure approximately 1" across, with the finished earring, before the ear wire, measuring 2.75". The technique is incredibly simple and works up fast. Use your imagination to create variety by combining different colors. The full spectrum of the sun contains all the colors, after all, so why not be creative?
Pattern includes finished picture of earrings, realistic bead graph, color chart for beading, suggested beads and instructions.
