Teacup Pansies


These wonderful earrings were made with my absolute favorite lampwork beads by Sue Beads. The colours in these ones are my absolute favorite. A mix of green and purple that is to die for!! These pics were taken by my friend Terri. She does a way better job than I do, so of course I am going to use her pictures over mine. I love how she found a teacup that totally matches the beads!!

The earrings are made with lampwork beads as mentioned above, they are hung on sterling silver earwires and silver plated head pins with Cubic Zirconia micro beads from Art Beads. They came on a mixed strand and are just wonderful for using  in just this way. I have a couple more hung on an eyepin just above the focal beads, to give it more of a dangle look. Long and dangly are very "in" right now and are one of my biggest sellers. Now if I could just sell a few things online...

Come again soon

Cute, but I wish we could see the earrings more close up. But I guess you didn't want us to get drool on them, right?

Such dainty lampwork beads...the colors are so pretty and really do match the tea cups well!! You're right...I think the long look is definitely in!

Really lovely things you are creating, Marie! Thanks so much for stopping by Treasures Found. I appreciate your kind comments. I love working with Vintaj, don't you?

I have a soft spot for pansies as they are my sorority's flower. Keep on with the wonderful jewelry! Enjoy the day! Erin
