    Another gorgeous pair of earrings – I have some of the fairys in antiqued brass – you are giving me some ideas – I will have to pull out my brass stash and play! :-D

    Oh Diane, these are super spectacular. Love them. They should sell like – hotcakes – as the old saying goes. Sorry your mouth is giving you problems again (or should I say still) I hope you get taken care of soon and have that money for beads, not dentists.

    Earrings are not my strong suit either – I tend to only make earrings when specifically asked.

    Thanks everyone :) Harmony, they are about 2 1/4″ long. Note to everyone: I bent the feet so that I could slip the jumpring into her feet. Don’t know if anyone noticed how she was hanging on to the dangles lol Hugs and goodnight!

    Lovely earrings. Earrings are hard to make for me too, for me it is hard to make two alike pieces ;)

    I love making earrings — I have tons of them for myself, to sell, and to give away!!! I usually make 2 pairs for a necklace (in different styles — 1 casual, 1 dressy).

    These are adorable! I love the way you used the tubes, Diane! :D

    Very cute “D” a bit too long for a short person like me to wear though. Love the look on someone else though.

    These earrings are so cool!!!! I have several packages of tubes in different sizes – some straight and some in pasta shapes – elbows and corkscrews. I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks sewing and making floral arrangements. Hopefully soon I’ll get back to beading. :)

    Great job indeed! You have done a great job with the last 2 earring designs I have seen. After you make more you’ll feel like they come together more easily. Keep us posted on your progress … very pretty! Love the tubes with the crystals at the bottom. SLS
