Earrings Earrings Earrings...

Here are some new earrings that I have been working on this week. First up is a pair of earrings made with abalone and lava beads that I accented with sterling silver and a 4mm Swarovski Austrian Crystal.

I then used the lava beads and wire wrapped with sterling silver three 4mm Swarovski Austrian Crystal in Amethyst. Taking it one step further I also have added the option to add on one 6mm Swarovski Austrian Crystal as well.

My favorite earring design of the week is the addition of my Whimsical Earrings to match the rest of the collection. If you want to take it up a step I have the Whimsical Earrings Deluxe that includes an extra five 4mm crystals to give it a little more funk! Isn't the Swarovski Austrian Crystal AB butterfly just gorgeous? This collection just makes me smile. :-)

N is for Noemi

I needed to make someone special for my wonderful assistant (from my day job, Super Mex Catering), Noemi. Without her, I don't know what I would do. I also had a request to come up with something different for earrings... well, I'm all for killing two birds with one stone (as long as they don't hurt a live bird LOL).

These gorgeous flower earring earrings is what I came up with. I think they are so pretty. The other pictures are to show how the look changes with by using different Swarovski Austrian Crystal colors in the center. Besides the Austrian Crystal the earrings were made with sterling silver and German glass beads for the flower petals.

For Noemi I also made her the dragonfly scrabble pendant. Like me, Noemi's favorite insect is a dragonfly... so, of course, she loved it! ... or at least she told me that she loved it. LOL To accent the scrabble tile pendant I made a complimentary charm out of sterling silver, Swarovski Austrian Crystals (Crystal 2 x AB and Rose). I love this so much, I might have to make one for me! :-)

I then packaged it in a cute favor tin with crinkle shred and a Whimsical Charms label on the bottom.

Whimsical Spring Bracelet

I've been working hard on trying to get my new website up and running by the end of January. I still have a lot of work to do, but it is finally taking shape! To kick off the opening I created The Whimsical Spring Bracelet to donate as a prize for a blog party that will be happening the month of February at The Diary of a Posh Mom. I love how delicate this bracelet is... so much so that I'm keeping the sample for myself! LOL In the pictures you can tell which one is the sample because there are no periwinkle colored fresh water pearls and the handstamped Whimsical is a little straighter. :D

Even if you don't win the bracelet in the blog party you may purchase one directly from my new website, www.whimsicalcharms.com for only $29.95.

The Whimsical Spring Bracelet is a fun bracelet featuring 13 Fresh Water Pearl is Spring time colors! Bracelet is handcrafted with Sterling Silver and includes a handstamped 3/4" round sterling silver charm with up to 8 letters including spaces with your choice of two fonts. I hope you love this latest addition as much as I do!

BTW, the picture below shows an "opps" on the handstamped charm on the right. I accidentally double-stamped "i" when my hand trembled a little bit. Handstamping is so temperamental. Normally that is a good thing, but you can rest assured that doublestamps that can't be saved such as this one will be recycled by being melted down and reused and not the way I would send your charm to you.
