Take one strand of beads

Petite Sunshine Earrings

The postman brought me my package of Mika of Pinocean's lampwork etched raku beads this week. Mika is a majorly talented lampworker who sells on Etsy.
Don't know about fellow bead folk, but I've got a bad habit of not reading the detail on how big the beads are (even though Mika clearly states this) , so at first I thought "Uh oh, very small"
They are in fact small and so beautiful, requiring not much more than to be grouped together to create some very sweet earrings. Here's what was made, with no beads to spare!
