    I have been working like a lunatic. These earrings have leaf chain down the middle and I made them mirror images which means I screwed up a few times making them and had to redo the second one a couple of times. :)

    Thanks so much! I had a show last Saturday. A lot of people LOOKED but not very many BOUGHT. Today I am taking pics to try my luck at Etsy. :)

    These are sooo beautiful, but are they heavy? Weight might be a concern for some buyers.

    I don’t think they are heavy. I had some people test the weight, say it wasn’t too heavy, but then not buy because they wear turtlenecks and were afraid it would hang too low. I need a scale. These ceramics are as light as glass. I have a pair of earrings that are 1.5 inches of chain mail with a lone garnet rondelle and they are heavier by far than these.

    Becky, all of these earrings are fabulous! I like longer earrings myself, due to my hair, but have found people don’t seem to care for the longer styles. As far as lots of looks and no buy….I’m with you. My usual cash cow is the Sunday Market. 4 weeks in to it now, and hardly a sale. Frustrating for sure, and with no PC, can’t really post to Etsy…Good luck!

    Becky, these are fabulous and I would buy them in a heartbeat if I saw them in person. I do think people buying online might be concerned about weight. They just LOOK heavy. Maybe putting a picture of the less substantial earrings that are the same weight would be reassuring? At least a mention of the weight and size would be helpful I’m sure.

    Weighty or not, they’re beautiful.

    Yeah…I agree….GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS! You make fabulous earrings Becky! Maybe sales will pick up soon since Christmas is coming up! :)

    Ok, ladies, I put them in my ears last night and these are the heaviest of this entire set but not uncomfortably so. My opinion. They do swing a lot and that might make them feel more noticeable. I am going to get my hands on a scale. :)
    Nancy, Hubby needed the computer last evening which abruptly ended my Etsy posting. I am working on it again in a minute. Nobody has asked for these besides you. :)

    And THANK YOU all!!! :) You are so good for the ego!

    Granny Nancy says:

    I got the big heavier ones. I don’t mind them heavy. I have fat lobes and my hair is long enough even with the hair cut that they will hang out perfectly. I love them around 2 – 2 1/2″. A matching “statement” necklace would be really neat but with chain around the neck. You have one in your shop sort of like I mean but you put beads all the way around. It would be more affordable with some chain instead. I’ll go to that one and leave a msg.
