Leaf & Berry

How many times have I made this style earring?
Probably 100 plus.
I call them 'leaf & berry.'

Sometimes with the little seeds, sometimes without.
Sometime sterling, sometimes bronze, or like this pair a bit of both metals.

I think the yellow beads are Vetrofond 'banana cream special odd.'
The little transparent green leaves have some random Val Cox frit and were made 'off mandrel.'
The stones are wee hand faceted garnets.

Chained Earrings

I have a new earring design.

Every once and awhile you make a pair of earrings that you just know you will make over, and over, and over again.

So simple, just my lampwork beads put together like rosary chain and hung from an earring finding.

I have a hundred ideas for color combinations.

Really loving this style of sterling leverback.

For all the makers out there - the wire is 18g sterling and the construction is simple 'rosary chain' made with small round nose chaining pliers.

The glass colors are all sorts of blue and green and teal transparent shorts that were in the bowl by my torch. Use your shorts!

In The Unicorn Grove

Currently all I want to make is big charm bracelets.

This one has lots of glass beads and leaves, a sterling silver clasp and bronze links, brass unicorn charms, brite jumprings, one huge quartz bead and tribal bells.

This one makes the best jingle-jangle noise.

Proof that I need stronger glasses for when I am stamping out tags.

Spring Bouquet

A mess of new spring earrings.

What would I do without my Cim's pinks?
