I've had a bit of a mad creating moment and I've been feverishly churning out earrings. Just sorting through bags and tubs of beads and odds and sods and trying out different ideas. This first pair were a major pain to photograph but I love these little green elephants that I've had for ages and I added some dark green stick pearls and turquoise, plus a smidge of guilder's paste.
Next are some danglers featuring these lovely twisted drops and snake eye drops by the ever inventive Petra: to my eyes they have an Art Nouveau vibe about them.
Next I moved on to an African vibe using Kim's lampwork beads and wooden sauces covered in paste and Petra's drops.
These next ones feature a bit of stringing with Irish linen thread, vintage seed beads and these lovely copper, hand cast components.
More stringing on these and these adorable mother of pearl bird beads.
Finally these amazing tribal faces from Petra with vintage brass buttons, yes you've guessed it guilder's past and leather strips.
