I’ve been working hard to have a full jewelry shop by Thanksgiving and I’m also working toward the goal of creating enough beaded treasures to offer at the Winter Fine Arts and Crafts Show the first two weekends in December.
Earrings make a good holiday gift, it seems to me. What do you think? One size fits all and they are usually in most people’s comfort zone price-wise. I’m still curious to get feedback from readers regarding their favorite type of jewelry gifts for the holidays. Let me know your favorite colors as well.
I bought these little green ceramic dangles when I was in La Conner last week, Aren’t they cute! I knew they’d make sassy little earrings!
Staying with the theme of sassy and green….how do you like these? Believe it or not, I got those two types of green beads at separate occasions, but when I saw them together, I knew it was a marriage made in heaven. I love how the circular patterns echo each other. Both the upper and the lower beads are very unusual–which is, of course, why I chose them!
These have been in the shop for about two weeks now. What I like about this pair is how versatile they are. They’ll go with everything and can be dressy or casual, depending on what you wear them with. The silver sheen on the shell pearls is just gorgeous, too. OK, do you want to see one last pair?
I just made this pair last night. The lampwork glass is by Jenelle Aubade of Radiant Mind on Etsy. These beads are so gorgeous, with tracings of onyx black glass over a sand colored slightly speckled surface. I love these beads so much that I have them in three sizes, so be prepared to see more of them! I paired them with hematite to make casual, chic earrings.
I hope you enjoy your weekend and don’t let errands eat up all your time. Find some space for fun. We’re going to an October Fest at a friend’s house. Bottoms up!
very pretty! I’m on an earring kick lately too!
I first got started with designing jewelry because I loved earrings so much! It’s like eating popcorn to make them–can’t stop! I was excited to read about your new copper etching set up.. Can hardly wait to see what you create!
Lovely, pretty pairs, Linda. I especially love the first ones – the green ceramic hearts. Those are awesome beads, and you matched ’em up so well with the accent beads. Good Job!
Thanks, Lee Anne! I’m kind of into ceramic at the moment. I have a few other ceramic projects sitting on my work table right now, too.
