About this design:

Rhyolite and brass are perfect companions as you can see in this group of ear rings. They are simple designs and were all made in one day. It took longer to select all of the components than it did to make the ear rings. I'm still trying to get back to making jewelry but for some reason I'm having problems coming up with new and interesting designs. I have pages and pages of ideas but none of them really "sing" to me.


Rhyolite, hand made red brass ear wires, various brass spacers

    These earrings are all great! There are small tweeks between them but how many identical pairs of identical earrings can we see in stores and craft sales?

    Rhyolite is my favorite mineral. You found a lovely batch with fantastic patterns. Very nice, simple earrings.

    I like how you took the same gemstone & made three different styles of earrings with the same theme. Often, when you have some great beads, it’s nice to let the stones do all the ‘talking’ as you’ve done here. Rhyolite is also a favorite of mine, especially the green variety. Been ‘saving’ it for just the right project–I need to just use it & enjoy it!

    So pretty LRC. I love your home made earwires. So glad to have you back!

    I was looking back at your many wire and sheet metal pieces. I love them! Many times you would claim to start with a scrap, so maybe that is the thing to do if your ideas on paper aren’t singing to you. Glad you are back to posting on LB!

    These are so pretty and dainty. They look very high end. Classy. We all get into a creativity slump. It will end.
