Hey,

I usually don't make earrings like this because I never have nice enough beads! I've just got back from holiday to South Africa where you can get lots of nice beads for cheap prices so I stocked up a bit Cheesy

Here's what I've made so far:


Little berries/oranges - I also made them in colourless/white crackled beads:


These are also crackled glass:

I wish I bought more of those bead cups though..


Leaf earrings with green stones


swirly blue foil beads


These are really simple I know but I love those beads


Quite like those too - they have green crackly beads


Nice bumpy lampwork beads (I've got a few more in other colours etc that I plan to use as colourful charms on a charm bracelet)


Purple beads with blue spots.  In the picture they look more browny than they are I think..

Anyway, opinions welcomed - tell me what you like and what you don't like (honestly please!) because I get a bit carried away sometimes.  Should I start from scratch with any?

Thanks Smiley

don't make any changes. I think they are all so cute and I love the wide range of colors in the beads you chose. Cute, cute.

Thanks I quite like them too, but I haven't worn any of them yet - some might have to be gifts!
