Lots of new earrings
Quick note: I'm sure you have all heard about the bombs at the Boston Marathon Monday and know my friend Melanie Horris always runs the marathon for cancer research. I heard that she and all of her friends with her are OK. She was stopped about 1/2 mile before the end of the race. It has been quite a day here in the Boston area. We are all still praying for those who died or were hurt. A sad day, indeed!
The swirl earrings I showed last week inspired me to make more. I've been getting better with the swirls and tried some different looks. Plus I made some twisted earrings that I've made before.
Here is a pair like the one from last week.
The color is more blue than shows in the picture.
Then I tried some Antique Bronze swirls in two different colors. I need some earrings to go with the wire wrapped pendants I have using Antique Bronze wire.
Here are some red ones. This pattern could be made in many different colors. Your choice. Have a favorite color you would like? The metal could be silver or gold, also as well as the Antique Bronze..
Now when you cut the wire to make the earrings, it is a good idea to cut more than you think you will need.
But, not wanting to waste the extra, I started swirling the left over pieces. And here is the results.
Nice variation for those who like smaller earrings.
Here are the twisted wire earrings that I made. (Busy this week, no?)
The beads are blue tear drop shaped with a flower design you really can't see in the picture.
And last but not least, twisted wire with pretty faceted black crystals.
I've added these to my web site and you can see them there with more information about them (size, price etc.)
Let me know how you like the new earrings
Bev, I think...
Until next time,
