Earring Bling

Earring Bling

Today I made earrings.  Lots of them.  There is nothing else to say, really.  I stayed in my daggy, around-the-house clothes, drank tea and listened to music.  And made earrings.  The market stall I was going to a part of was suddenly cancelled, so I am planning on having another mini-market at my house.  Which means I need lots of stock.  Hence the earring marathon today.  I made ethnic-inspired ones and bright ones and sparkly ones and ones-I-don’t-like-but-maybe-someone-else-will.  Many of these were made with recycled beads, rescued from old jewellery found in op-shops, or given to me by lovely friends.  Waste not, want not!


I didn’t think these colours would work together but now I kinda like them in this pair…


I went boho on these ones…


Copper and green is always peachy keen…or something (I like this colour combination in other words)…


Pretty in Pink – shells and birdies…


These elephant, wooden, chunky earrings are, well, chunky, but some people like their bling big, right?


Cheerful little number, this pair…


Another bright set (pink not red in this one although it is hard to see in the photo)…


Always gotta make lots of owls…I already have an order for some of these…


Pastel pink…one of the butterflies is upside down, I just noticed.  Shhh, don’t tell anyone!


Another bright and cheery pair – love the yellow in these!


Feeling fruity…


Shell and glass and ceramic beads make this pair…


More shell, and freshwater pearls…


An oriental pair…

My dining room table is now a state and I haven’t done any ironing or sorted out my lunch for work tomorrow.  My back is aching (ugh – so old!) and I am slightly squinty from having worked in bad light for most of the day.  But I am happy.  A day spent crafting is a good day indeed.

Hope the start of your week has been fulfilling and and a sign of good things to come.  If nothing else, you are one step closer to Friday!  Smile! 🙂
