Last Minute Me

Happy Monday, Kids!

Whew, I’m out of breath from running . . .

Not really – but I am just barely getting in under the wire for this week’s Make somethin’ Monday post. πŸ˜‰

In my defense, it’s not that I haven’t been trying. I actually have 3 things in progress.

“That doesn’t count, Crystal. You need to have one finished.”

Well, luckily I just completed these!

Measuring 2-1/4″ long, these dangle earrings feature Tanzanite Aurora Borealis Swarovski Crystals in a medley of shapes and sizes.

I’m thinking they’d be a fab holiday gift for someone on your list . . . or maybe for you? πŸ™‚


P.S. Sending a great big thank you for the sweet comments and emails I received last week regarding the Cup of Bead Soup Design Challenge.

I truly do have the best blog buddies out there!

  1. Crystal, you are SO cute…your convo with yourself made me laugh outloud! LOL πŸ™‚
    Your earrings are gorgeous and full of sparkle with those lovely crystals! I love tanzanite, especially with gold! Very beautifully done my friend.

    psst..keeping my fingers crossed for the new challenge.

  2. Those will make someone very happy. Where do you come up with all the fantastic ideas?! I can barely get the dogs’ Halloween costumes together.
    I will be decorating for Halloween this weekend and the carpet cleaners come tomorrow. Next Saturday the dog rescue group comes to my house. I have already received requests for the homemade mac and cheese.
    Fall has come in quickly here. It was in the 40’s the other night. Today is was 86 and sunny.
    Have a great week everyone!

  3. Beautiful earrings. I think you like making earrings. You do them so well.

    I forgot to leave a comment for your challenge. When I went back yesterday I realized I had missed the deadline. Oh well, so many people want to work with your beads. I will just enjoy what the chosen ones make. I know the projects will be awesome.

    Kelly Ann, fall arrived in my parts over two weeks ago. We already turned on our heat. I froze practically to death, caught a cold (felt like pneumonia), went through one whole box of kleenex in one day. I am better now. After we turned the heat on.

    So… Crystal… who picks the lucky four?

  4. Oh Donna!
    So glad you are feeling better – quickly!
    Lori determined the winners for this challenge – Flop Cat Design, Mixed Mayhem Studios, It’s a Beadiful Creation, and Roxi Designs! πŸ™‚

    We’re having the same roller coaster temps as you are – freezing one day and roasting the next! Come on, October! πŸ˜‰

    Hi Brenda
    Thank you for your sweet words! πŸ™‚

  5. You’ll have to remind us when to go check out the designs. I know you will be posting their creations somewhere, on one of your sites.

    I am feeling better. At least I am no longer afraid to cough, sneeze, breathe. πŸ˜€

  6. Hi Sweetie! These earrings are absolutely gorgeous, and I totally agree with Brenda about the tanzanite looking beautiful with the gold. You have such a eye for combining just the right beads and metals. I always love your creations!!! xoxo πŸ™‚
