A Few Fun Earrings


About this design:

The third pair goes with Nancy's last Hootie necklace (yeah, I am a little slow...), The second pair has dangle ceramic teardrops from Scorched Earth, and the first pair I call "Tiptoe Through the Dumpies". :) Petra from Scorched Earth made those dangles, too, and her name for them is "dumpies". Of course, I had to put them with "tulips" and paraphrase Tiny Tim. :)_

Components:

Czech Glass, Unicorne Beads, Purple Crazy Lace Agate, Picture Jasper, Vintaj wire (I made all the earwires this time! ), pewter artistic wire, Petra's marvelous ceramics, waxed linen and seed beads. All LB except the ceramics!

    All of these are beautiful. My fav overall is the 2nd pair. Your wire work is amazing!

    I love Nancy’s Hootie earrings! Are they heavy? The blue ones are beautiful too and look vaguely nautical. The stones in the dangles are super cool and unusual!

    Hootie earrings are very light. Those stones are not that dense or big. Actually, all 3 pairs are lightweight with the blue being the heaviest.

    Ooohhh!! Aaaaahh! Alll 3 are fantastic. The pink pair has to be my fave though. The bottom beads look like little stones.

    Hey you think you’re slow…I just finally mailed off my Nancy projects yesterday. My 2 weeks of eye problems coupled with the fact I cant leave ANY projects out at all and that I have a mental block invloving crimping made everything take longer than I expected. The last bracelet for the ceramic dragonfly necklace was the hardest. It just kept falling apart. I didn’t even get a photo if it.

    Love them all, but like the blue ones best!

    Love them all, too, Becky, but really adore the ones to match Nancy’s Hootie necklace ! Just might have to imitate that idea – - – (could never match what you create, though).

    Becky they are all awesome, but I’m partial to the blue ones, I think I have the same beads from Petra, you have been really busy, not like me, just doing a couple of custom orders, catching up on supplies too, this is my first weekend off in a long time :D

    SquirrelGirl aka Angela says:

    These are all fantastic! You are so creative in your designs. I’m partial to the blue ones, the beads are gorgeous. I like the little triangle headpins you made for the first pair, very unique.
    Your ear wires are perfect. :)
