Fairy Sparkle Earrings

I went to a great sale at a local bead store called Beads Galore. They were having a wonderful sale and I bought some crystal beads. There were sooo many beautiful colors it was very hard to choose. I have enough to make earrings all year long I think:) It inspired me to come home and make earrings this weekend. I used to have a catagory called Fairy Sparkles on my website but deleted and combined the earrings into other catagories as they sold. I loved that idea of sparkling earrings that were fit for a fairy! So I have decided to add the catagory back. Some would appeal to a garden fairy, others to earth fairies. A couple of them are vintage inspired but they all sparkle. I made 18 pairs today and decided I better stop and get the photos and add them to the site before I get too carried away. lol

This is a picture of Lucy, many of you may know she is my office manager. This is how I have to make earrings. Try as I may to move her she always comes right back, so I just have learned to work around her. But I dont think I will be giving her any raise this year! Have a beautiful week, happy creating,,gail

Gail, I love those blue flower ones! I will have to get a pair for on of the GD's. After gathering all of the pink stuff for her birthday she now tells us that her favorite color is blue! Blue!!! Since when!! LOL

Don't suppose you picked up any sparkly stuff in purple, did you?

Hi Gail,

I love your new earrings! So pretty and you sound like you have been busy.

This tummy bug is no fun. I feel just awful but am hoping it runs it's course fast so I can get back to work/play. Hope you feel better soon and have a wonderful week!

Love the earrings Gail, they are so pretty and deserve their own fairy garden to reside in on your site.

See your helper is napping on the job again, give Lucy a hug from me. x

I have a feline office manager too. He sleeps in this box that is way too small, but I don't have the heart to get rid of it.

Tedi said...

Wow, how pretty! Cats... you've got to love them too.
Hugs, Tedi

Lucy is as cute as can be. Something about a critter resting in the mist of our creative work, makes things even more magical. Your earrings are proof of that. Just lovely my friend!
Hugs to you always,

I love your fairy idea! The earrings are wonderful! I know you problem of choosing colors. If you see the post I did today... you will see I just bought them all! Lucy is adorable! Give her extra goodies for helping. You are lucky to have her to hold & hug. I would give anything to have Reba back for ONE MORE HUG! Have a great week. Charlene
