These earrings are from a design I adapted from a tutorial by Rena Klingenberg. I shortened the silver wire by 3/4" from her directions. I really like her original design, but I played with the dimensions for a slight variation.
I've been fitting in some studio time, while unpacking. As you may have seen, I've cranked out a few new pieces. And I'm almost back into my full time schedule of making jewelry. I'll share a few more creations that I have just finished.
These earrings are another adaption from a design from the book 'Making Wire Jewelry'. I used a smaller gauge wire for the 'pedals' on the hanging link. Then, I added a crystal because I wanted some color.
My up coming goals will keep me extremely busy over the next few weeks. I need to crank out a lot of new designs and get some inventory ready to present to the local co-ops and gift shops. I also plan on visiting the Manassas Farmers Market to see if it is a possible venue for me and my tent. So you can expect some pictures of new places for my jewelry to be sold.
These earrings are an older design of mine. I believe I made my first earrings in this design about 4 years ago. Since these were a birthday present for my friend Janet, I decided to use sterling silver from head to toe. Since Janet has beautiful salt and pepper hair I decided not to antique the sterling silver and instead added a high polish.
Tomorrow, I'll be putting the finishing touches on some hoop earrings, plus I want to get started on a new bracelet.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
Have a joy filled and creative day. ~ Linda
