Tonight’s offerings are shown below - and I’d like to tell you more about my model - Ludia. She is scaled to life size - and all earrings she models are as if a real actual person had them on. I love it because I can size the picture down and the earrings are sized down as well… just an easier and less distracting way to give you a better idea about size.
Almost looking like edible Macron - these tiles come to you in softened hues of late summer with trailings of fine white scrollwork. Pressed into straight sided - slightly pillow topped beads that measure 15mm in diameter. All beads have 1/16” mandrel holes.
Nicely cooperative grouping of highly styled beads. Many unique shapes and looks here. Encased Jetstream, Nailheads, Encased Stardust, Carved, and two exquisite jet black cubes with mirror finished sides.
All beads have 1/16” mandrel holes except a few dangle charms that have sterling bails and are shown above threaded over small seed beads, and at the end of the strand at the top. Very nice mix here.
Classic ivory and black in my Over & Under style. I’ve taken measures to reduce the weight of the earrings. These weigh in at 4grams each - that’s a little over a penny. Lots of swingy movement - you control the earrings - and are not at the mercy of something stiff that doesn’t move with you. All findings are sterling silver and handmade by me. These earrings dangle about 1 3/4” from your ear lobe.
Another crisp edged delight in bold blue/turq and jet black. 15mm dia beads have straight edges and slightly pillowed tops. Eight beads with 1/16” mandrel holes and one cute ‘lil charm to hang from the finished item. : )
I made this style earring over a decade ago - and it seemed appropriate that they return now - when they can be scaled down a little (3/8”dia bead with raised dots) and suspended from 12mm square black tiles. My handmade custom sterling silver findings.
The best of both worlds - 1/2”d sweet apricot drops, suspended from transparent glass in similar color. Nice balancing act with a lovely movement due to the nicely designed hinging system… All findings handmade from sterling silver wire.
Just Go Bold, don’t go home… I’ve paired the fun pistachio color with hues of green, and warmer tones of the coming *(I hope) fall. Most beads are 1/2” ish with 1/16” mandrel holes. Many are carved or encased in clear - lots of interesting inclusions and interesting shapes! Plus - five single hole charm style beads that can be clustered or sprinkled through out the project.
Doesn’t the name just make you sing that song?? Cornflower blue dangles below periwinkle disks… classy and quiet.
Yum. I weighed these earrings - each weighs 2grams… how’s that for almost nothing??? I’ve taken measures to lessen the weight and I think this is it : )
glorious deep purple tops with a single holed bead dangling from it. All findings are sterling silver and handmade by me. These are sooo cool!
So often I pair contrasting complimentary colors in these sets - but this is the first time it’s been monochromatic… and I dare say I love it! My single hole version of the Jetstream style beads *base bead that’s been wrapped with silver wire - and encased*, dangles below a 15mm sq. crisp-edged tile of same base color. All findings are handmade and are sterling silver. My model, Ludia thinks these are especially flattering and her very favorite this week!!
Again - loving classic color combinations jet black with ivory dotted dangles below. All findings are sterling silver.
Long sleek and slender matching pair of tapering point denim earrings with black ‘self-cap”… all findings are sterling silver.
