Earring Frenzy!!

I have seriously been on an earring frenzy lately. My rack is so full I don't know where I am going to put any more. I guess I will just have to sell them ;)
I have really been into copper lately, brass too for that matter. I have also developed quite the courtship with Rhyolite. The colours and the texture, it just makes me smile to look at it. Now about my photography, I can not get t to work for me. My staging has gotten better, but the pictures still leave something to be desired. One day...

The first and second pictures are essentially the same basic design, I even used similar beads. The main thing is the difference in the Rhyolite. The first is very smooth and simple. The second has more texture to it and stands out more because of its shape. I won't go into detail on how I made them, you can pretty much see for yourself, of course you can contact me if you do need instructions.

The one thing I wish, is that Bead Trends would have picked these earrings{second pair} as well as the 2 vintage pieces they did pick. These really were my favorite earrings I sent them. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. The most important thing of course is taking the chance and trying.

Don't forget to enter Silver Parrot's giveaway!!! The draw is tonight so hurry!

See you soon

Marie, I love copper and brass. Although brass is more difficult for me :(. The staging is good and so are the earings. I love the ethnic feel to them.
