Earrings R Us

What can I say? I can’t seem to stop making these “bead woven” earrings. 😉

~Southwest Serenade~

They differ from the other earrings I make in that this type is created with tiny beads and thread, instead of larger beads and metal wire!

As a die-hard purple-lover – I am way out of my “color” comfort zone here, but I’ve discovered that I absolutely LOVE this blend of matte turquoise and copper bronze.

The ear wires are made of brown niobium metal, which has a lovely reputation for being kind to sensitive ear lobes!

I have another pair in the works, but I’m itching to begin a special crochet project… Decisions, decisions!

Giveaway – Aqua Ice Earrings

Happy August!

Suddenly, the summer seems to be flying! I’ve decided not to be too sad about that though, because I love the autumn! 😀

This weeks giveaway is a pair of earrings made with very unusual and very beautiful Vintage Lucite beads. They have a subtle texture and a matte metallic sheen on their surface. The color is a breath-taking shade of AQUA – it looks icy cool!


I‘ve accented the vintage beads with Swarovski crystals in a gorgeous shade of teal blue called indicolite.

For pierced ears, the earrings measure 1-3/4 inches in length, including the sterling silver earwires.
