Carrier beads are all the rage now so I had to try them. They certainly are fun and addictive. They stitch up fast and there are bunches of patterns to make. All of the pieces that I have seen are simply strung with a beads at each hole between them. I wanted to do something different, so this is what I came up with. I made a half a dozen tries at stitching them together  then gave up and went to bed last night. First thing this morning I thought of eyepins to connect them and they worked great. Three sizes of aqua rondelles, gold spacers, and white pearls create the straps along with a hook style clasp. An aqua drop hangs as an accent from the center carrier bead. A pair of carriers that match the necklace center bead were created as earrings. Simple wire wrapping connects them to the earwires. I am proud of how this set turned out and I hope you like them too.
