Tiny Turquoise Beads

For the past 10 days or so I have been on a jewelry making binge. I’ve been experimenting with different shapes of ear wires plus using unusual shapes for the dangles.

I don’t normally make my ear wires but I saw some unusual shapes while window shopping on line and thought I’d give one style a try.

Chain Links

However, making the shapes identical was more of a problem than I had expected. (Measure twice – cut once.)

While making the earrings I came across a very rustic chain I made many years ago.

Chips on a Wire

Some of the links were quite different so I decided to take sections apart and see how they would work with the unusual shaped ear wires.

Then I found some beads that I had never used before. I have no idea how long I’ve had them but they were just the thing for earrings with a different style ear wire.

Seed Pods

I really should inventory my beads. There is no telling how many styles and shapes I have over looked.

I guess that is a common problem for any one who has been making jewelry for over 10 years.
