My New Favorite Earrings...

I have tried making earring wires several times on my own.  I'm not good at it.  Usually I get the wrong type of wire.  I tried beating it with a hammer.  Usually it would just end up breaking.  So I figure if you can't make something, buy it from someone who can.  So I found these ear wires on Etsy (at Shel's Jewelry Supplies) a couple weeks ago and bought some.  I also bought the mini version cause I love mini stuff.

This weekend Beezus5 attempted to take me to her favorite beads store downtown but it was closed.  Fortunately there was another bead store across the street.  So after checking out every bead they had I ended up buying a few.  I made these earrings for myself with the mini hoops.

I like them.  I think the ear wires really "make" the earring.

And here are some more I made for my Etsy shop with the bigger hoops.

What do you think?

I like those wires very hot. I also like the look of the bead. I think those will sell fast on Etsy.

Those are beautiful earrings and I LOVE those ear wires! They add just that little bit of extra interestingness.
