odds and ends

About this design:

I've been home sick most of this week with sinus trouble. In between naps and meds, I had time to play with beads! These are odds and ends... pieces that appealed to me... and pieces that "jumped together" and said create me!!!


Raku beads (Yea! I have more of these!). Czech bellflowers and picasso-triangles and faceted rondelles.

    Very cool, Julie!!! Do you have an Etsy shop yet? Or are you just set for life with earrings?? ;)

    Ha Ha Becky! I am finally creating pieces that I might be able to part with. I need to get some “stock” on hand to put into the eventual Etsy. I’ve been in an earring mood.

    Wow you have been busy, Julie! Another fabulous array of goodies! I love them all but I think the set with the green flowers is my favorite! Is that brass or copper pieces?

    Aren’t odd and ends just fun, Julie ??? Love what you created – - the first pair may be my favorite, but it would be hard to choose – - -

    Get well Julie, and I have to say these earrings are fab-u-lous!

    Love all of them, but the first is my favorite. I agree with Becky about opening a shop. If you let someone with a shop know ahead of time, they can send you 40 free listings, and they will get 40 free too. I did it for my sister
