I love love love this new earring design. I think i enjoy the contrast of the straight piece ending in the circle - it just seems pleasing to the eye for some reason. Let me know if u like these. Thanks and happy valentines day!
Well, that's what i call them! what do you think?? Sterling, naturally. Actually the "beads" are from Greece and are ceramic with a find silver overlay - nice.
Sometimes it is interesting to see how things are made - it can be hard to imagine the process. so, here is a slideshow about how i make my "raindrop" charm, which i generally use as earrings but the could also be used as pendants. Enjoy.
Really disappointed today - planning to go to our local arts market, held monthly but woke up with a headache so couldn't go. what a bummer.
This a little slide show showing you how i make earwires. All of the earrings i make hang from handmade earwires, most of them in the design shown in this slide show.
