Basic beading - necklace and earrings

beaded necklace earrings DIY

This past weekend I taught a beginner's beading class about a few basic tools and techniques and how to go about choosing beads that look nice together.

Everyone made a lariat necklace with matching earrings. I made this sample set from a kit - a little southwest style with silver and turquoise colors.

We had a lot of fun and my photos are only so-so, but these women created some really lovely jewelry!
