I found these cool fiber optic beads at Shipwreck Beads forever ago. Fiber optic beads are cool and remind me of cat’s eye beads in that they kind of reflect the light, but fiber optic beads have a more metallic reflection. I thought that they would be great for some sort of patriotic jewelry, but I didn’t have any particular design in mind. Then one day it came to me and I made these awesome earrings that look like America (minus the hamburgers and fried chicken). Since I had two different styles of fiber optic beads, I made two different pairs of earrings.
Unfortunately, Shipwreck Beads has stopped carrying the fiber optic beads shown in this post, but if you’d like to buy the red, white, and blue mix, the link is below. Happy Fourth of July to all my American readers!
