Giveaway – Candy Corn Earrings

August Greetings! πŸ˜€

Don’t worry! There’s still lots of time left for summer fun.

But…. Autumn is definitely on the way, so my August Giveaway has a fall-ish theme!

“Candy Corn” Earrings


I’ve chosen some of my favorite beads for this design – they have sort of a subtle Autumn/Halloween flavor. Wouldn’t they be pretty to wear with a jacket done in earth tones?

The pumpkin-colored teardrop beads are Vintage Moonglow Lucite, and the very unique “candy corn” beads are Vintage Czech Glass (If you enjoy making jewelry, too, the candy corn beads are currently available in my bead shop).

The earrings measure a bold and beautiful 3″ in length – including the artisan-crafted earwires, which are sterling silver.

Today’s question is:

Describe the closest thing to you, right this minute, that is red? (You might have to leave the room to find it.)

My answer: I love bright colors so I figured I would have something here on my computer desk, but nope! I finally spied my little red retractable tape measure on a shelf across the room! πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Crystal, Another swell set of earrings. Love candy corn too.

    Nearest thing that is red is a red lead pencil with red painted outside too.

    Hope you are having a lovely summer. Hugs, Jane

  2. Great Earrings! I LOVE those candy corn beads!!

    This is such a funny question. I am sitting at my desk with plenty of red around ME~

    All are an equil distance away so you get em all~
    My coffee mug, cell phone, pen, tv remote, an AARP card that came in the mail that I am saving to use to spread glue, a medal that is from Terry’s army uniform, a binder, College Dictionary, the pillow case on the pillow I use to support my back on my computer chair, a red plaid flannel shirt draped over the back of my chair, my IPOD, a tube of acyril paint, my glass case, the carpet in this room, several tins on my desk.

    I am surrounded by red~ as I turn and look around this room there is even MORE!! So how come I claim purple, aqua and coral to be my favorite colors? HUH? No clue? Me either. ~lol~

    Have a great day. I am on vacation this week. My only goals are to transfer pictures from my computer to flicker, load photo shop to my computer and read…thats it.

    xx, carol

  3. Hi Crystal, as always, beautiful earrings! I love the earth tones.

    The closest red thing is a school photo of my daughter that is on the desk. She is wearing a red uniform shirt. (At her old school, they had to wear a red shirt on Thursdays; blue(lt. blue or navy) or white any other day. What were these people thinking? Don’t they know that you cannot wash red with anything else?!!)

    Have a great week, gonna be a scorcher here. Hot & humid with heat indexes that could reach 115!! I will be glad when summer is over!

  4. I love the earrings, they are so pretty and classy. I’m working on fall fundraisers for my dog rescue group. So I’m ready for the cooler weather and fun.
    My dogs red toys are the nearest red things to me. He takes them all out of the basket and scatters them all over the floor. There is a dog with a red hat, a red and green tug toy, two red white and blue rope toys and his red bandana that somehow fell off of him. I will be putting that back on him. There is also a red cedar beam above my head, but I’m not sure that really counts as red. Behind me there is a red stuffed twizzlers guy that sits on an antique sled. The sled has red runners.

  5. LOVE these earrings – so attractive.

    The closest thing to me that is red is my AP Stylebook. It’s got a red cover and it’s sitting on the shelf above me right now.

  6. these earrings are gorgeous, crystal!!! you always choose the yummiest beads to create your masterpieces with!!!

    right now the closest thing to me that’s red is the tomato sauce in the photo of the scrumptious lasagna in your previous post…..!!!! xox, :))

  12. Hi! I have a red t-shirt on my dresser that says “Rock On” with a climber climbing a boulder. πŸ™‚

    I love these pretty earrings! Thank you for this giveaway.

  13. Very pretty earrings.

    I have a huge red Christmas ornament hanging from one of those hooks with legs. The surface is filled with signatures and best wishes in gold ink. From people I worked with over the years. I received it at my retirement party four years ago this coming November. Each signature brings back memories of time spent with each one. I never put it away. I like to look at it.

  14. Hi Sweetie!

    Those little candy corn earrings are so, so cute!!! Makes me happy just looking at them and thinking of fall and Halloween! YAY!!!

    The closest thing to me that’s red is my red pen. I always have one nearby, as red is my favorite color to write in!

  22. Hi Crystal,

    Thanks for your email I will reply shortly, just need to speak to my other half. Since I found your website last night I can’t stop looking through it – there are more and more gems every time I visit.

    I know I probably can’t enter the giveaway as I live in the UK but thought I would join in any way. The closest thing to me which is red is my lip gloss which takes like strawberrys – um um.

  23. Very pretty earrings!! My red thing is a very boring red pen. I looked around to see if there were any more exciting red things, but all I’ve got is some red scissors, a red pencil and a red binder. Oh and some red post-it flags. I need to get some red non-office supplies!

  24. Sitting near me on a table in this room is an ornamental Japanese doll on a stand and she is wearing a bright red floral kimono!

  25. Sitting in my pen cup is a bright red Pilot V Ball Extra Fine pen which I used early today drawing a three mile radius around a target on a map.

  26. I’m in the kitchen, working on the pc at the kitchen table, and there is a red dishtowel with a drawing of yellow and green bell peppers on it!

  27. It’s the tag on my baby’s swing that says Fisher Price, or the baby who is in it and keeps periodically crying his head is pretty red too!
