I hand wove these earrings in 1995 for a staff art exhibit when I was working at USAA in San Antonio. The earrings won first prize in their category. I've kept them since carefully stored, but it's time to exhibit them again.

--3 1/8" (7.9cm) from the bottoms of the ear wire loops
--1 1/8" (2.8cm) wide at their widest point

I made the earring body from size 14 hex seed beads I bought at Supernaw's Indian Store in Skiatook, Oklahoma, many years ago. The "hex" designation means that the beads are cut and these are traditional hex beads, fewer colors but more vibrancy and shimmer than the modern hex beads.

There are 248 hex beads in the body and 17 strands of fringe on each earring. The small seed beads in the fringe are size 14 seed beads with a few larger seed beads for accents. The colors are predominantly turquoise, orange, red, black and white with dark mustard yellow beads for contrast.

The center length of fringe is accented with a faceted round black bead, a single deep red miracle bead, and a small black glass bead in the shape of a heart at the end of the fringe.

These earrings are guaranteed to turn heads, one of a kind, great with denims, linens and black.
