Earrings for Joy!

Hello All!
I thought I might share with you what I have been up to in my art room.
Just a little jewelry play! Do you make jewelry?
I began as a child with macrame jewelry, remember that?
Then in my early 30's I took my first wire wrapping course when the nineties were young.
Jewelry making has been an enjoyable hobby ever since.


Just sitting quietly, looking at all the colors and textures... 


I just play around until some combination looks pleasing to me. 


Earrings are pure fun to make and very relaxing. 
I love using natural stones, gemstones, vintage beads and crystals.
The above square pillow beads in lilac are fluorite.
This set I even tied in a little pink embroidery floss and it gave the design some nice texture.


 They can be so simple, yet so lovely to wear!

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!
If you haven't signed up for my Milestone Giveaway just go HERE to do so,
there are some really great prizes I would love to share with you!
Hugs,
Terri
