Chevron Fringe Hoops

Beautiful Chevron Pattern Fringes hanging from silver hoops these earrings are so sassy and sophisticated, perfect for daywear in town for a contemporary boho style. I stitched them by hand following a traditional chevron pattern as used by native American Indian bead weavers but wanted to bring a modern feel also by adding the silver hoops. I love how the urban plays with the tribal here.

For the fringes I used Delica seed beads which are like tiny tubes (as opposed to round beads) so they hang and move beautifully. The earrings shown here combine a lovely mix of bone white, deep maroon red, turquoise blue and olive green gold.

    Chevron Fringe Hoops

    My Chevron Fringe Hoop series of earrings are one of my most popular ranges. Simple in concept yet intricate to make these handmade earrings make a statement about the type of woman who wears them: youthful in spirit, connected to tradition yet contemporary in outlook, a lover of handcrafted jewellery. These earrings are perfect for a daywear style that is sophisticated without being fussy, bohemian spirited and just a little bit outside the mainstream.

    Bead weaving is essentially a Native American art form with many of their creations holding political and ceremonial significance. The Chevron pattern is one the most prevalent designs. There is strong symbolism in the colours used in Native American Beadwork. Of the colours I’ve used in these earrings green represents plant life, the Earth and Summer. White is used to represent snow, death, peace or winter. Red symbolises thunder, day and sunset and blue means sky, water, clouds and the moon.

    The tiny Delica seed beads used come from Miyuki, a Japanese firm, quite simply the best glass seed bead makers in the world. The 1 inch (2.5cm) hoops are silver plated and nickel free

    They measure 3.5 inches (or 9cm) long and are surprisingly lightweight and comfortable to wear.
    Comes presented in a lovely gift box tied with ribbon all ready to gift or better still to keep. Note pair modelled in last photo are slightly different design.
