For Courtney

About this design:

This set is for my 16 yr old great niece, Courtney, who is "Goth". At least she thinks she is! LOL This is about as Goth as Mom will allow. This is my rendition of Chicky ChaCha's Gothic Earrings. Thanks ChaCha for the idea!


"Black Lace" connectors and earring findings, deep red crystals, onyx faceted ovals, hematite spacers and strs, 3 styles of chain in black

    Cotton Market – I went there in February when we visited hubby sister in Louisburg

  15. Chippy Chick aka Lindys
    Chippy Chick aka Lindys says:

    It’s not the Cotton Market. It’s a local artist pottery but they also showcase handcrafted jewelry, stained and artist glass, teapots (which are my favorite), some handmade furniture, etc. For the life of me, I can’t remember the name. I’ve been there with my sister several times over the years.

    This is a pretty design, not too ‘goth’ for a 16 year old … I agree, no need for more chain, it’s great the way it is. Have a great trip! SLS
