Here is the earring I had left.
So I took apart all three earrings and threaded the stones onto two earring posts combining the larger stones with the smaller ones.
I had these posts in a box of beads my Mom gave me from her jewelry making days in high school. After I had the right amount of stones on I added the earring hooks so I could wear them :)
I think they turned out pretty good especially considering I have never made earrings in my life!
Ah, I love them! And I certainly hope my craftsmanship was better than the original artisan because I will be crushed if one of them falls off the hook again!
I had so much fun I decided to make another pair! In the box of beads my Mom gave me when I was a child I found the beads from a broken rosary. I called my Mom and asked whos it was, but she couldn’t recall. Anyway, the sparkly blue beads called to me and I needed to make a second pair. I only had one more pair of hooks left, so I tried out a few designs before I settled on one.
I love how they turned out. So pretty and sparkly!
I love them! Don’t mind me holding my hair back out of my face. Also, you might notice my wardrobe is different. After I hugged hubby when he got home from work I noticed I had something icky on my shirt. Apparently he had saved a little lunch on his jacket and decided to share….how sweet. lol
