Best Beaded Earring Design of the Century

Ha! Monkeygirl has done it again. She sent this link to the cleverest beadwork design I've seen in a month of Sundays:

OH yeah. You can talk about your fancy graphed patterns and your elaborate color schemes. Uh-huh. But LiciaBeads at Etsy has great design all figured out -- 1. Bead what you know (LOL!) and 2. Less is more (except perhaps when it comes to the TP). Ahhh, the unity of form and function, a perfect exploitation of the inherent properties of beads and wire. Oops, I think I just had an art criticgasm.

Seriously, when I asked Licia if I could post a picture of her darn-it-wish-I'd-thought-of-it design, she said, "Sure!" and even went one better. She's offering a free pair of her sterling star earrings to any purchasers who use coupon code SeriousTP808. All you have to do is choose the star color.
[The fine print: Use coupon SeriousTP808 for your free gift of beaded star earrings with sterling earwires when you make a purchase from LiciaBeads. Just let her know what color you would like or it will be chosen at random. See listing for your choices. Indicate coupon code and color preference in the notes to seller box upon checkout. Offer is valid thru September 30, 2008.]
I kinda like the sound of that coupon code: Serious TP. ;-) Nice job all around, Licia! Thanks for letting me share your insanely, mundanely, smart design.

  1. I fell in love with the TP earrings from the minute I saw them. I asked if she was going to write a pattern for them and she told me "NO". Oh well, I think they are so cute.


Thanks for your comment! It will be reviewed and posted ASAP.
