Ukrainian Beaded Earrings
Created by Julie Long Gallegos
Tiny size 15/0 Japanese seed beads are needle-woven around hand shaped wooden forms, accented with 2mm coral round beads, and set in hand-fabricated the oxidized sterling silver bezels and findings. Shepherd's crook-style earwires. 2.25"-2.5"L and .75" wide. Reminiscent of Ukrainian Easter eggs (pysanky) in deep red, black and warm ivory. Surprisingly lightweight to wear.
