Earrings Galore


I have quite a few projects 'on the go' at the moment but it seems the only thing I can finish is earrings. I love the teeny tiny ladies watch faces I have used for the five pairs above and the way their little hands swing lightly below. I have listed one set on Etsy, if you would like any of the others listed please let me know.
The cog and wheel trees were also fun to make and are surprisingly light weight. I wonder if the watchmakers of old would approve of the recycling that occurs with the creation of steampunk jewellery.

The bird earrings have so many 'almost too good to use' components, blue mother of pearl fetish beads, sterling silver hand made nests, and glass leaf beads.
It has been a totally relaxing weekend full of friends, sleep, creativity, sleep and did I mention I caught up on some sleep, LOL.
Enjoy the week!

LOVE the earrings! I'm sure the old watchmakers would approve. Afterall their work is now being featured by another master craftsperson.

I'm sure the watchmakers of old would revel in the fact that you are reusing something as often happened in days gone by. Great stuff Julie.

Cheers!

OHHH the bird earrings are gorgeous! I am sure that any recycling of items watch components, washers etc are all a good thing so long it keeps items out of landfil then they are fair game for recycling!

All the earrings are gorgeous, but I think the bird ones are my faves - so tranquil and elegant.
