Highly Unlikely Squares and Blueberry Earrings

Red, it's one of those colors that I generally don't like much.  For once, I was truly inspired by red, and with turquoise no less! 
I was inspired to use this color combination from the bracelet shown below.  This bracelet was designed and beaded by the very talented Mikki Ferugiaro (photo used with permission).  Thank you, Mikki, for the great color scheme and the inspiration! You actually made me like red, and that's no small accomplishment.
Here's another close up of the earrings.
Do they look huge? Last time I saw Florence in person, I was wearing my own Mini Blueberry Beaded Bead earrings (in purple and green), and she was very surprised by how small and dainty they are.  She had seen photos on line, and she always imagined them to be much larger than they really are.  Mini Blueberry Beaded Beads measure just 11 mm in diameter.  In my book, that definitely qualifies them as minis.  See how small...
While I had these seed beads out, I made a second Highly Unlikey Square pendant that matches the first, but with green instead of red.  What can I say?  My love for red is fickle, and by now, you know how I feel about green.  At the same time, I actually like all colors (except yellow) because I've learned that any color can be beautiful if it's used well with other colors, even red.  Now, if I can just figure out how to love yellow, I'll be set.
I have a tutorial for the Highly Unlikely Triangle, a related but simpler design.
Thanks for looking.


  1. Red is my favorite color.

    The earrings are quite becoming and I love the highly unlikely squares.

    1. KJ, I'm glad the red lover in you approves. Thanks.

  2. I remember that bracelet of Mikki's... It is as gorgeous now as it was then, and your set is equally gorgeous. I'm really digging your highly unlikely series.

    1. Thanks Cindy. It's always fun playing with new color combos, especially when they work!
