I finished a couple more pairs of DNA beaded earrings. Measuring about an inch and a half long to the top of the ear wire, these are the shortest ones I've made so far, but the beads in them are really nice, including many of my newest fanciest seed beads. Plus, those little red sparkling beads that look like garnets are tiny faceted red spinel, a slightly harder stone with a slightly higher refraction index, which means they sparkle just a little more than your typical garnets. I like the way this color combination is muted without being dull or boring.
This second pair is a little longer. The little white beads are rainbow moonstones. They have flash, but I wasn't able to catch the flashes with my camera. So you'll just have to trust me on that.
I like this angle for a photo below, but I'm not sure that most people would recognize this as a double helix. What do you think?
