Keep It Simple

About this design:

I thought earrings would be a simple and less painful thing to make. The Chrysoprase and Saki teardrops with Apatite chips are going to be for people who have helped me thru this difficult time...referring to having to put Sidney down. Also I have a pair of Green Onyx that I'm waiting on some flower posts.


Saki teardrops, Apatite, Chrysoprase, Goldstone, Lip Stick Ranch chandeliers, Sterling and copper ear wires.

    Beautiful sweetjane. I love all 3 pair but the lipstick ranch chandeliers are calling out to me. I love how they look with the goldstone and copper.

    You’ve been busy already. These are are wonderful. The first pair is my favorite. Those hoop findings are special. I would like to have some of them.

    Beautiful earrings. I’m sure your support friends will enjoy them and think about you and Sidney when they wear them. I’m with BLE that the Iron Horse pair are my favorites.

    Sorry about the Iron Horse that should have been Lipstick Ranch. Can’t blame it on autocorrect either!

    You’ve really gotten into the swing of things quickly, Jane! All three pairs are special, but I love the chrysoprase ones the best.

    Thanks again….Candy, I think I really started back too early and too fast. I was supposed to wait longer. Maybe if I just stick to stringing.

    All are so pretty! But what caught my eye are the rustic pair with goldstone beads. I don’t see many people create pieces with this stone.

    I don’t have pierced ears. How do you know the limit as to how heavy earrings can be? Anybody know? Your earrings are beautiful, sweetjane.

    I got back to stringing asap, even after thumb joint replacement but was ever so careful about my positioning and quitting when I started to hurt.
    Good luck and have fun!

    Thanks Merilee! I’m limiting my time doing any beading. Especially any wire work.
