Gold and Burgundy Fairy Wing Earrings

Gold and burgundy wing shaped earrings -

Starting with deep burgundy ultra suede, I added gold highlights using metallic acrylic paint and accented the wing with tiny golden rocaille seed beads. The top of the wing is accented with glowing pale yellow rondelle beads with a rosette trim of shiny and matte gold seed bead petals. Loops made of vintaj brass wire are securely sewn into the ultra suede wing and then hung from vintage style antique finish brass lever back hooks. The entire earring is backed with more burgundy ultra suede and edged with a whip stitch accented with tiny size 15 rocaille seed beads.

 

These earrings are very lightweight and the wing is slightly pliable - they hold their shape due to the multiple layers of ultra and very tight stitching around the edge. Altogether unique in a magical way!
