Earring Tales: Pumpkin Spice and Black Cat charm

Orange! Fall orange!

…Or maybe Naruto-style, who knows.

Hmm. I thought that the silver-lined light orange beads (bottom underline to a silver-lined section) would contrast a lot more with the s-l clementine – which are a kind of coral-pink-orange on their own. Huh.

Still looks good, and I was just trying to do fall colors, so I think it works.

And here’s a tiny charm – could be an earring, but I didn’t have the patience to try making 2 of these. Also I think the design is not as physically strong as I’d want to make on a general basis – that 3-bead neck just bothers me. Given single-drop brick stitch is such a pain, I’d rather take some time and try to redesign it before I make something like it again.

  1. Make the moon start higher up, like by the ears instead. That could make it easier to tell it’s a moon (I just thought it was the cat’s shadow that you’d added to keep the tail strong) and avoid the neck-issue.

    Good luck with all your issues – may Murphy find it enough and avoid you for a while now. 😊

  2. I agree with Emerald. If you move the top of the moon up two rows but leave the bottom, I think it would make it rounder as opposed to angular.
    Well, that’s IF you make another one. πŸ™‚ It’s cute though!

  3. Y’know, it might just be because the word β€˜cat’ is in the title, but the earrings really remind me of orange tabby cat stripes πŸ™‚
