I wanted to use TierraCast's Guru bead in an unexpected and creative way. In this design, I turned it upside down and dangled it below an earwire for the start of some fun hoop earrings.

TierraCast offers amazing components that open up all kinds of jewelry-making possibilities. The Guru bead is just such a component. It can be used in the traditional way, at the center of a mala necklace to dangle a tassel, or you can use it in creative ways. Cheri used it at the top of an earring design. Play with the Guru bead in your jewelry designs and see what you come up with!
