Earring update

About this design:

I’m still loving the alcohol ink- and the Czech glass daggers. I’ve gotten so many compliments on those big daisy ink earrings ( I usually don’t wear big earrings, but times are changing and now love them).


I used lucite beads and hand painted them with alcohol ink. The leaf pair have copper findings and Swarovski crystals. The Czech dagger beads came mainly from LB and some from Etsy. Notice the Czech glass watercolor flower pods in the red pair- they’re too cute(hope LB gets more in). I need a room for all these beads!

    Robin – your earrings are so creative. I just love seeing what others are making. I don’t know how to use alcohol inks – is it hard to do? And it’s funny how our taste in jewelry changes over time.

    Wow, tAlk about talent! You have a real style and technique(s) for making flower earrings – I guess you could call them statement earrings. I love them all.

    I would have a difficult time picking a favorite. These are really gorgeous. I really like the pair pictured by itself and the pink and green flower earrings.

    I love your Czech dagger earrings. The red pair reminds me of samurai armor.
