    Here is my latest. Apatite and pearl.

    I also made a matching pendant for the first pair of earrings, to be strung on a long strand of matching garnets.. The plan was for a pair of shoulder duster earrings but I ran out of tiny pearls.
    Hmmm, notice a trend? I think I have an excuse to go shopping. By the way, does anyone know of nice and tiny little drop pearls?

    Lady_Disdain, can you talk to us about how you made the little pearl bead caps? Did you use a drill or a reamer? They're fabulous!

    I made one - thank you for the inspiration and instructions, LD! I need to make a black spinel one to match the necklace I posted it.

    That is way out of my pay grade but I love the idea.

    Nice one, battah! And yes on black spinel. I love how glittery it looks.

    I just posted pics of my black spinel kumihimo necklace (probably in the wrong place, they're in my post about the clasp) - they're so sparkly and they make me want to make black spinel everything! I'll probably wait til the next gem show here, though, I got them dirt cheap and haven't been able to find comparable prices online.

    Here is a better shot of the finished necklace and tassel. I wanted the tassel to be nice and long!

    This is brilliant! I love that the bottoms dangle separately from the tassel strands.

    Thank you JerseyPearl, I thought that it would look nicer to finish the end of the tassels like this and with gimp, Also no wire outside of the last pearl. I used the technique that you said you used on your tassels, like in the Youtube video, except for the gimp and the wrapped pearl. Also added gimp between every strand over the loops, there is like a crossbar under the conecage, for extra strenght. It was superfun to do, but took some hours, Also my kitten stole the project halffinished and ran away with it. But she didn't damage it, nor herself. Luckily I used softflexwire and no needle...
