Yafa Petal Earring Colors

     Thank you, to all of you who have written to me about the Yafa Petal earrings! Your encouragement has been such a blessing to me!
     Many of you have requested the bead colors that I used for the alternate colorways from the Beadwork article. So, I've decided to post them here for you. I've also included the corresponding letters found in the instructions.  Keep reading! There will be a list at the bottom of the post.
     I have a good friend who doesn't like to wear long earrings, so I made this pattern into a pendant. Here is how it turned out. I've also added the colors used in the pendant in the list.
