    These are totally funny and wild! I love em :D Together with necklace, octupulicious!!!

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    I am so glad you approve! :) Actually it goes more with the Pearlescence necklace in beads but the octopus in style. I’d wear them with either. Your opinion means a lot to me because I love your freespirited style! :)

    XOXOXO to you my fellow free spirit :D

    These are so fun, Becky! Are they heavy?

    Julie Shane says:

    Love these! I really like the mix of FW pearls. :)

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    thanks! they’re not heavy at all, just a lot of action. :)

    Laud says:

    I love long earrings, but my ears are weird about too much weight, so I’m glad they’re not heavy. The abalone is so pretty with the pearls. There’s a feeling of flight–lots of movement. These would be fun to wear.

  8. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    Very pretty and shimmery and dangly. Abalone is just so lovely….it.looks really good with the pearls.

    Deb Harding says:

    Oh and you were much harder on yourself about that necklace than you should have been. We all said it was pretty and all said to just change the FW pearls side.

  10. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thanks, Deb, but to me it was a disaster. :) I was hoping you guys could help me out and you did! That one side just didn’t work and I was messing with it for at least 2 days trying to keep from starting over which is what I should have just done right away. It was supposed to be a quick, easy project to use up those stones and it grew into a monster.

    Elis Mom says:

    Becky, love these earrings! I haven’t gotten the knack of the long danglies yet. Yours are beautiful with the pearls and abalone!

  12. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thanks, Susie! I love danglies and I wear them all the time. I used to have long hair and it hid them a lot but a year ago I cut it very short and now my earrings swing all over the place! :)

    Asia says:

    Becky, I love those :D

    What could be better than abalone and pearls? They were made for each other and you have made a terrific pair of ear rings with them. :)
