New Earrings- Paper & Pearls

Those that know me know what a tough day today is for us. DH did a major project to keep his mind busy. But it wrecked my creative space until the "improvement" is done. LOL. So I didn't get as much done as I had hoped~ I was rather hoping to keep my mind busy too. On a better note, the improvement is in the space where I create so it should allow me more room & better storage for all my junque!

I did finish a pair of earrings & dug out the camera to take a pic. (yes I know....still need better pix) These are sterling silver & a variety of pearls with a vintage paper "bead". I really like these, they are long & feel kinda sexy swirling around. The drop just happens to be a great length. This pair is for me but I think I'll make a similar pair for my etsy space.

I'd love to hear what *you* think of them!

Chunky Funky Pearls

While I still haven't completed any pieces, I did receive some awesome stuff that I ordered~so I can play. I fell in love with the dark green baroque pearls as soon as I saw them & had a few ideas about what to do with them. Since they actually spoke to me I had to have them, I sort of wish I had bought another strand too. When I got them they were a bit smaller than suggested but I still love them. LOL. I also got 6 strands of other beautiful freshwater pearls and some other stones and some silver. Gotta go now......I'm going to spend some quality time with my pliers.
