Peruvian Thread Earrings

My newest fascination is making Peruvian thread earrings.  While they look amazingly complicated, they are surprisingly easy to make. I came across this tutorial on U-tube Peruvian Thread Pendant Tutorial by Camille Sharon that showed clear and concise details on how to make them and off I went. 

Since I had ,perhaps, hundreds of hanks of embroidery thread that I had bought for projects I never made, I decided to give them a try.  So far I've made about 10 pairs.  Some I've listed for sale on Art Fire, some I've already sold to co-workers and some I saved for myself.  

Here's my latest endeavor:

They're lots of fun to make and look beautiful when you're finished.
