Native American Handmade Rosette Earrings

Details

I hand beaded the rosette using opaque dark blue, opaque kelly green, opaque luster chartreuse, opaque yellow, and opaque white seed beads, and then nestled it into a silver plated 22mm round bezel.
I used 20ga. sterling silver to make the ear wires.
Earrings.... 1" long
With ear wires..... 1-1/2" Long

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Making rosettes for a Pow Wow, and decided to make a pair of earring.

Materials Used

opaque dark blue, opaque kelly green, opaque luster chartreuse, opaque yellow, and opaque white seed beads,

More Info

These long tubes are then cut into small sections called "canes." The canes are sorted for size and then cut into small tubes which will eventually become the final bead. The beads are finished by "reheating techniques (tumbling and constricting) or by lapidary methods (grinding)." In the modern French process, the unfinished beads are "mixed together with crushed charcoal, sand, and liquid plaster" and "placed in another furnace and heated while rotating to 800 c which shrinks the tube to its permanent form of the round bead." This is another critical step in the process because the heat creates the final roundness and the real color of the bead. Until this final step "the real color of the bead has not been seen. They have been colorless the precedent steps, which also creates the uncertainty if the correct shade has been achieved."
The beads are now complete and are ready to be cleaned and packaged for shipment. The entire process has taken as long as 60 days to create a single color. As you can see, there are many steps in the process and even a slight variation can have a major effect on the final size, color, and shape of the bead. Hopefully, you now have some insight as to why every batch of beads we get can be a different shade and why it is almost impossible to obtain perfectly sized and shaped seed beads.
