Dutch Spiral & WhirliGig Earrings - Golden Sunset Delight Set

Available at Rossmoor Lapidary Club - $250.00

Beads, Fire Polished to "bridge"
This one I modified sizes & # of sizes of the beads.
Size 4mm Fire Polished, 3 rows Size 8s, 4 rows 11/0 plus bridge with just 9 beads in bridge-lacy part.
I put the name of manufacturer, item/color# & (sources) as sometimes the same color names are different. Found that with the Czech FP beads.
This is a very TIME consuming project but not hard.
Varying the sizes & increasing the number of rows really made for a more dramatic necklace!

4mm Czech FP - Sunset ( 300 makes a short necklace. I used all of them & then reduced circumference by skipping over them then continued for a couple of inches.
