E is for Earrings

Copper Canyon

Making earrings is usually an afterthought for me.  Once I've made a bracelet or a necklace, I decide that a coordinating pair of earrings should be made.  I really need to put forth more deliberate effort into earring creativity.  

One of my "issues" with making earrings is the need to create not just one creative piece, but another matching one since earrings come in pairs!  Do you know how hard that is sometimes, particularly with gemstones which are rarely alike?  Often I just choose two stones that are similar enough, as shown in the following two pairs below.

I love it when I find beads that are just meant to be made into earrings, such as these fuchsia lucite ones below.

Now is a good time to check out the new earrings I've listed in my Etsy shop.  And as always, if you see a bracelet or necklace in my shop without a coordinating pair of earrings, just ask!  I will attempt to create something for you.


  1. I just never thought of the matching thing. I can see how, with earings, you would want to get them just close enough to be real, but not different.

  2. Lovely work kathy...I love them all, especially the fuschia :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. It's a pleasure to hear from you!
