HDT Earrings

I know can you believe it? I finally posted some thing on this blog! Actually I have been working on quite a few things but I never get the time to take pictures. Lately I have been experimenting with Procion dyes. Wonderful product! The Ben Franklin is the only store here that sells it and they have decided to no longer carry it. What a bummer! I need a couple of other colors (like black) so if anyone knows how to get a hold of some, please let me know. I've created quite a few colorways that have turned out well and I am experimenting constantly. Now I know why people are hooked. The earrings above are one of the colorways. This one goes from a dark green to light green to light blue to dark blue.
I've also been working on some jewelry using wire frames and jump rings, covering them with the double stitch and rings. Need to take photos of these but they are done in silver metallic so I need to figure out how to get the detail and not the shine from the thread so more to come soon!

Very pretty! I was just visiting this blog recently (looking at your shuttles). Have you found an enamel shuttle??? I want one, too!

Your earrings are nicely done.
