Fairy Earrings and Necklace

About this design:

I am getting ready to see the shop owner soon and wanted to make some earrings. I'm really not into making earrings so this was a challenge for me and I would appreciate any suggestions you have for me. After the earrings I decided I had to make a pendant to go with. I used mixed metals in the pendant. Nervous to post this one but here it goes :)


fairy charms, copper findings, beadcaps, chain, clasp, metal pieces, Aquamarine, swarovski crystals

    Thanks Linda :) Been at work and the dentist, they let me go home early today and and I threw these together. Nervous about the shop owner and if she will like them or not. I’m having trouble with 2 other teeth now. The dentist is taking away my bead money :(

    I can not make earrings. Never could. Don’t know why, but I can’t. My best friend makes all mine for me (well, at least for now!) I am going to do better, I have to. I can create stained glass windows, dichroic pendants, soy candles, and jewelry, but not earrings.

    And – if the shop owner doesn’t recognize the talent in this set – that is his/her problem – no problem with your work! This is the kind of design that sets you apart. Did I mention how much I like this?? :) :)
