    Cool Octo Babies!

    Well, I keep waiting for a good day to take photos on earrings, but I give up. I must share these gorgeous little babies that Sheri Jurnecka / La Corsetiere made for me. She picked out a fabulous crop of tiny freshwater pearls while she was in Hong Kong for her future babies and I went straight home and glued them up!

    First, a frontal shot.

    Notice the fabulous detail on the underside? (including excess glue!)

    I am a proud mother. Now I just have to find the right earrings to dangle them and I'll come back later to post an ear-shot.

    Happy Holidays Blaire!!! Those are so sweet the Cephalopod crowd will go crazy for these tiny critters. I have a question I am going to email you privately about, RE, the earrings. But I am having a bit of trouble with staying logged in here :-(. Just in case I can't get back on, if you still have my personal email can you email me so I can reply.

    I finally got to a computer with a larger screen and now I can appreciate more of the detail of the metal work and the gorgeous luster on those pearls. Very, very pretty.

    Thank you. As if the earrings aren't cool enough, the pearls are killer. For those who noticed, yes, they are two slightly different shades. But they really made me happy. Although I teased Sheri about how long she could sit and evaluate pearls, she clearly has a great eye. I am good, but I do not have the amazing patience that Sheri has. Sigh.

    Blaire, your new Octo Babies are just adorable! Sheri undoubtedly has the eye for picking pearls as well as sea life Can't wait to see how you dangle them from findings. What metal are the octo babies?

    I think the incredible luster made up for the slightly different shades.

    GemGeek they are SO ADORABLE!!! Are you planning on having them as dangling earrings or more of a stud type on your lobe? Can't wait to see finished product & earshot!

    Oh these babies are tiny and they are some blend of casting brass. Of course, the hoop is also very small, but you can get an idea with the dime in the photo. To hang them on regular earrings, I would need to put a jump ring in between so that the octo would face forward.

    Such adorable babies! I'd love to hook a bunch of them together and dangle them as earrings, with a bigger one and some babies as pendant ...
