The Earring Whisperer - Heavenly Bodies
















Same with the dark blue/gold, polymer pair. I tried many different sizes and shapes of crystals and different rings.  The challenge with this pair was the different length and sizes of the focal components. Asymmetrical designs are a favorite of mine, but each piece brings new challenges to solve.  The delicate "neck" of the teardrop shape need a light bead and also I wanted to cover the connector loops for a more cohesive look.


My suggestion is to hang on to ALL of your little bits and pieces from other projects, you never know when they will come in handy!

I hope you enjoy looking into the process as much as I do!

It's been a crazy wonderful week for me Attending Bead & Button!  I could use some serious sleep but that will never happen!  LOL  Hopefully I will have some new exciting things to show you all soon!


Many thanks for stopping by!  Meow

The earrings are fabulous but as I grow older I am becoming partial to lightweight earrings. So even I am drawn to making something similar for myself, I shudder at thought of how heavy it would be

Super cool!!!

Loralee said...

Thank you so much everyone!

Divya, You would be amazed at how light these both are. The dark blue drops look heavy but they are made of polymer clay and are super lightweight. I myself don't like heavy earrings and I usually make what I'd wear. :)
