After months of non-crafting due to work and study, I decided that i needed new earrings (and gifts for friends)! So I made these:
These are my first "upper class" earrings.. Meaning I spent moolah on sterling silver hooks, went searching for high quality fastings, and bought *actual* Swarovski Crystal beads.. They were for a friend who has high end taste, but who is a sweetheart, so was worth the pennies! =)
These are becoming my favourite earrings atm, just coz they're modern, fun and whimsical.. And they remind me of my favourite season- Autumn!
I have to thank craftster for inspiration for these earrings.. I've seen necklaces made from watch parts- but I don't remember who the clever craftster was who came up with the idea... Apologies (& kudos) to that GENIUS!
These are made out of an old swatchwatch (which i bought from ebay for $20! expecting it to work dammit! But the dude sent me a broken watch which wasn't repairable instead... *astard!!! ) Oh well.. the earrings are preeetty snazzy i think!
Anyway, thanks for looking- hopefully i can inspire others too!
