Earring designs launch a new hobby

By on Saturday, January 09, 2010 4 Comments

Rita was keen to try her hand with a new hobby. She said she had always wanted to learn to make her own jewelry. So to start off, she decided to make a couple of earrings. Her first pair was actually a recycled piece. She brought to a workshop some jewelry she didn't like. She first dismantled it and then redesigned a new pair using some of the pieces hanging from gold tone chandelier findings. Matching irregular nugget beads were hung in front.




She chose an unusual combination for her second piece - huge deep pink dyed agate round beads were teamed with much smaller turquoise beads. That's the beauty of making your own jewelry. You get exactly what you like. Rita was so smitten with her new hobby, she didn't waste any time hightailing it to Michael's the local craft store where she succumbed to the siren call of beads in their jewelry section!

  1. I can't choose a favorite! The first pair is elegant, but the second is so unusual and I LOVE the colors. Well done, Rita!
