I've been admiring all the beautiful pieces here!

Here is a few pieces I've made recently. I'm looking to start my own business selling my wares soon and would appreciate any and all feedback.

They're beautiful!  I especially love the light blue and yellow multistrand necklaces.

thanks everyone for the compliments! happy to hear its not just pretty to me  Wink

for the crystal earrings, I take a piece of wire with a lot of extra length at the top(24 gauge works best for me) and round it into a semi oval shape... add beads and wrap the top leaving a circle (can't remember the technical term) at top to attach to earring wires, then I make another circle at the bottom and wrap again, add crystal drops and voila. I got the idea from my hairdresser and have made about 7 pairs so far.

just bought an attachment for my camera so I can use a tripod. I took 40 pics yesterday but almost none turned out cause I needed to be more steady. will post more.

thanks again for all the encouragement. when I start my business, I'll be sure to post the URL so you can purchase if you like.

You have a real eye for balance, and it shows!  I really like your earrings..they look feminine, eye catching but not overwhelming, and lightweight.  All important things, in my book!

You did say "any and all feedback" so...here goes...the *only* bad-ish thing I see is this:  your wire wraps are a little loose, so if you could tighten up the wraps, it would be perfect all around.

Pretty pretty!
