Remember bangles and how much fun we had making those. Well I've applied Fancifuldevices wonderful technique to earrings. I've got loads of odd, tiny beads at the bottom of my bead boxes, so I set about playing. Fancy's tutorial is still available in her shop
In pink too
Tribal style, with mother of pearl, ostrich egg (yes really), jade and daggers.
Butterflies and chains
The last set I etched some copper and did some wrapping
Since it was such a hot day for once I sat outside with my steel block and hammered out my ear wires with my legs crossed, very authentic and low tech!
I also made this with some awesome crystal that as finally seen the light of day after being hidden away in a draw. See what happens when you rummage away in your drawers....(adopt Kenneth Williams voice and say loudly Matron!)
Lastly a re-worked necklace, this one just wasn't working, so I went back changed the beads and calmed it down!
I'll shut up now, but I'm delighted to have been selected for bead soup and I'll fill you in on all the details over the next month.
