Moonstone And Oxidized Copper Earrings Project

Moonstone And Oxidized Copper Earrings

These beads are incredible – them seem to glow! The oxidized copper really brings out the glowing blue white color on the moonstones. These remind me of a full moon glowing in the night sky. They hang about 1 3/4″ below the handmade ear wires on an oxidized copper chain strung with handmade oxidized copper […]

Sodalite Swirl Earrings Project

Sodalite Swirl Earrings

To create these earrings I shaped 18 gauge wire into a swirl. Then I hammered the silver to give texture. Then I used a headpin to attach sodalite nugget beads. I attached a closed jump ring to the swirl & used a sterling fishhook earring finding. Sodalite is the stone of endurance.

I made my Aloha Sunset Earrings with little round pink coral gemstones that I brought back from a summer trip I took to the Hawaiian islands with my husband for our 32nd wedding anniversary. I hand wrapped them with 14kt gold filled headpins and clustered them together on 14kt gold filled chain and 14kt gold […]

Roadside Attraction Number Thirty One Project

Roadside Attraction Number Thirty One

These earrings are crafted from up-cycled leather and fabric. I used stainless steel links to create a chain maille drop. Stainless steel is a hypoallergenic metal and gradually gleams with wear. The black beads are glass. For findings I use leverback hooks which are perfect for stretched ears as they secure tightly.

Simple Pink Wedding Earrings Project

Simple Pink Wedding Earrings

I made these earrings using sterling silver findings, chandelier components, and best of all, Swarovski crystals and pearls. I love the shine and sparkle of the crystals. They are just beautiful. I was inspired thinking about a wedding with beautiful pink roses to match the earrings and set everything else off beautifully.

Harvest Earrings Project

Harvest Earrings

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the copper charm with the birds was a feeling of a brand new day filled with happiness. So I decided to use the red marble-like beads to give it a cheerful feel and match it with white agate chip stones to bring out the […]

All the metal used in these earrings is gold filled and they hang about one and a half inches long from the bottom of the earwires.

Smoke And Sparkle Earrings Project

Smoke And Sparkle Earrings

I bought these lovely smoky-sparkly golden crystals awhile ago and was at a loss as to what to do with them. Finally deciding not to overthink it, I added oxidized sterling silver findings and oxidized, stylized, sterling silver handcrafted earwires to them and I loved the way they turned out. Sometimes simple is best!

Fall is so full of wonderful rich colors. And as you know I love leaves! So this is my way of capturing those colors in this fall inspired pair of earrings. The leaf charms are antiqued gold color with freshwater pearls in various sizes and rich autumn colors. They dangle from a gold petite chain […]

Dancing Raindrops Earrings Project

Veronica Drop Earrings Project

Veronica Drop Earrings

These drop earrings started with the cute sterling silver bead caps. I paired them with the foiled glass purple beads and thought that looked nice. I did some wire work to attach them all together but they were still lacking something. I looked through my beads and found only two of the delicate faceted purple […]

Silver Disc Ceramic Earrings Project

Silver Disc Ceramic Earrings

I created these earrings using beads which I have only recently discovered through a friend – metalized ceramic. The discs are actually sterling silver plated ceramic, so they are lightweight and relatively cheaper than solid sterling silver beads. I combined the shiny silver with a simple black glass bead as this is always a classic […]

Leafy Hoop Earrings Project

Leafy Hoop Earrings

I filled this pair of hoops with patterned oval wooden beads and separated them using other wooden beads of different shapes and sizes. To finish the earrings, I used jump rings to attach wide teardrop pieces to the lower end of the hoops, in order to create a dangling effect.

Blossom Earrings Project

Blossom Earrings

I made these earrings with pretty powder blue chrysanthemum blossoms which I set on diamond shaped antique brass filigree. I added pale pink Swarovski crystals and a smaller crystal in a rose colour as a dangle below the flower. I attached them with an antique brass headpin. The earrings are set on long antique brass […]

Black and Red Chandelier Earrings Project

Black and Red Chandelier Earrings

Sweet Nectar Earrings

These earrings are very simple in both style and construction. First I hand wire wrapped gold vermiel wire around medium sized light salmon faceted Chinese crystal briolette beads. Then I attached them to pendants that depicts a hummingbird receiving it’s daily nourishment; nectar from a beautiful flower. I knew that the frames needed to stand […]
