In a previous post It started with a dress...... I mentioned that my dearest friend Karen is having a special birthday party soon and has asked guests to wear something pink if possible. As I am not a particularly "pink" girl I decided to make some pink earrings.
I started by looking in my bead stash for some pink beads.
I found some lovely pink swirl handmade lamp work beads left over from a previous commission, some pink Swarovski pearls and some pink Czech faceted glass beads.
I also thought using some silver bead caps would add a touch of sparkle.
I had a play for a while and came up with a couple of design options
I got out the trusty pliers and made them up adding some lovely rose sterling silver ear wires which I have been saving for such an occasion.
I took some photos indoors last night but decided to wait until this morning and try outside as the light was poor.
This morning I woke up to grey clouds but I still thought I would get some better light in the garden so I took my new earrings (plus another set I made to put in my stock) outside. I set everything up for the shot ...
And guess who arrived to inspect them.........
Is this the sniff of approval? Have a great weekend everyone.
Bye for now,
Jx (and Billy)
