  • Stuff I Made

    I woke up this morning and felt like I needed to make a new pair of earrings. Because I only have eleventy million pairs already.

    These are FWP drops I bought for the purpose of remaking - they were just the pearl on the hook. I dug out some ombre tourmaline beads I had and made them into drops. The holes in the tourmaline were so small that I had to use 28 gauge wire, so I'm not sure how durable these will be.

    They're lovely. At least earrings don't get the wear and tear of a tin-cup necklace or bracelet, so they should hold up well.

      Oh, pretty, pretty! Love earrings with some movement! I agree with BWeaves, the 28g wire is fine.

            Thank you, BWeaves, Pattye, 86C and Red!

            I am generally pretty gentle on jewelry. My only concern is that they may get caught in my hair. In addition to being such a fine gauge, it's also fine silver, so softer than sterling. But I will wear and enjoy them and just be extra careful :-)

              Lovely earrings! I really like the ombre effect. They look like fun to wear. Just don't wear near young children, human or otherwise.

                Thank you, Linda! These are just about the last of a lovely ombre strand of tourmaline I bought many years ago. I wish I had more!

                Not to worry - it's only us old folks around here.
