Earrings that I’m making.

I’ve got a new jones.   Making earrings.
I have struggled with necklaces...and hassled
with bracelets.   But making earrings?  
Easy.  Fast.  Quick gratification.

I made these modern day Mourning Jewelry ones
the day Amy Winehouse died.  A tribute to her.
I used jet Victorian buttons on these.

Old Amethyst beads, vintage rhinestone spacers,
old Art Deco connectors.

Citron colored crystal beads saved from a decayed
Art Deco necklace found in a shop in England.

These blue beads are Czech Picasso Saturn's.
Love, luv, love these.

These purple ones were harvested off of a 1920s Art Deco
necklace that I found in a dusty old box at the  Newark Antique Market
In Northern England.

I have never worn swinging, dangling earrings.
I always went the modest route with studs and silver hoops. But these feel so cool to wear and
  they feel great swinging under my hair.  I’m hooked on them now.   

I am not a bragger...  or a very good self promoter.  People
often say to me.."Gee, I never knew you could do that!"
I dislike blowing my own horn.  In la, la, la “L.A.Land"
everybody is always bragging about something that they do.
Heck I’m from the Midwest...we don’t do that kind of stuff.

So I quietly made these earrings at my kitchen table.
They are for sale in my etsy  shop.

Not a good bragger - are you sure you're not British ;-)

They're all gorgeous but the citron pair are real beauties.

No, but I’m married to one.

And yes, it is one of the attributes of the British people that I very much admired. Check out “loveandlilac” blog. A cool British chick with a fab
cottage style.
