Who doesn't love the glitter of gold? I recently found in my stash these little light-colored bugles - just big enough to get a needle into, but that's it. They're a nice light golden color, not too harsh. And of course, I went into my favorite stitch, herringbone. When woven together they reminded me of liquid gold spun into a twirling rope.
I paired them with these warm pink, top-drilled pearls to add a dangle to the center, creating truly "Classic" earrings that can go from the office to the party that night!
