New Earring Designs...

I've been a busy little bee. Above are twelve pairs of earrings that I just finished. I used lots of artisan goodies, including some from Candice Wakumoto, Lillypilly Designs, Patti Cahill, Keith O'Connor, and Gail Crosman Moore. With the artisan made goods, I used Czech glass from Raven's Journey and Pudgy Beads. I also used an array of pearls and stones from Talisman Associates Inc. and Bead Trust. Earwires are from Saki Silver and The Odyssey and Bead Expressions.

Really nice Andrew. I hope they fly to new homes with great speed!

I love the ones with the green birds made from Lilly Pilly shells. As a matter of fact, I have a Lorelei necklace made with the same little green bird :-)

Hey Patti! Thanks so much! Hopefully they'll make a detour to some of the magazines before they alight in a new home with more permanent owners.

OH! I need some more beads from you. When is your next show? I might have to swing by after Tucson on my way home to pick a few up.

Hey Cynthia! That's not even half of it. I think you'll be pleased with my progress report.

Hey Norma! Thanks so much for your kind words. I love Lillypilly and I love the little birds. The lighting is bad in this picture... or maybe there was just too much other green in it... because they're actually gold. I still love them. I've got a blue one just waiting to be used.

These are great! I like how different they are from one another, and in elegant ways.

My mouth waters when I see all those beautiful earrings. I love middle row, second from the left and far right. And also bottom row second left and.....heck, I love them all.

Andrew Thornton said...

Hey Sheila! You know what they say... "Variety is the spice of life!" Consider these spicy!

Hey Davinia! Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm pretty pleased with how everything turned out. I've actually been working on a couple more. Looking at the picture after having made them has really helped also to fine tune the look and feel I'm after.

Hey Janet! Hmmmmm... maybe I'll have a Lillypilly giveaway on my blog at the end of the week? We'll see.
