Chevron: Anansi Earrings

'Chevron: Anansi Earrings' - a project example from a class by Alex Rogers at the Alaska Bead Company
click for larger image

These earrings were inspired by a folktale Alex learned after asking why their class pet, a tarantula, was named "Anansi". The cunning spider of African tales, Anansi once tried to gather all wisdom into a pot, but fell climbing a tree to store it in. The pot shattered and an oncoming storm carried the wisdom to sea where it spread around the world, putting some up everyone’s sleeve. In this class, we'll weave to hang a little wisdom from our ears as well, using a chevron pattern for the "M" of Anansi's legs, to retell the story with wire and beads!
