Fiesta Earrings

Last time I visited a bead store, I picked up these great striated beads that kind of reminded me of Jupiter:
Too bad I was so busy matching colors I didn't check to make sure the holes were drilled perpendicular to the stripes.

The beads were crying out for fringe (that's why they have giant loops at the bottom), so I obliged with little links made from size 6 and 8 seed beads:

The fringe with a mix of three and two links didn't work out; the twosies stuck out at odd angles, so I redistributed the links to make them all three beads long.  That gave me the drape and movement I was looking for.

The finished product, ready for a party:
