Hi all,

I've been working on some more pieces. I'm also attempting to get an Etsy store running, so I've been busy.

First, earrings inspired by Alice in Wonderland:

One earring features a silver toned cat charm on top of a lacy brass filigree piece. It hangs from an electric blue freshwater pearl.
The other earring showcases a charming silver teapot charm that, like the cat earring, hangs from an electric blue freshwater pearl.

Second,

These earrings make me think of an Edwardian lady eating petits fours at a lavish Tea Party. Haha.

Third, The Guns of Brixton

A pair of crossed guns on top of pretty lacy filigree. Swarovski crystals add some sparkle and a freshwater pearl adds some girly charm.

Fourth, Love Birds

A beautiful vintage bird stamping set on silver plated filigree. Freshwater pearl and Swarovski crystal drops add sparkle to the look!

Fifth, Sea Biscut

Features a heavy-weight brass horse charm, pretty blue patina brass filigree and fuchsia freshwater pearls make the chain.

Sixth, Kind Taxidermy

A silver deer head sits on brass filigree and a vintage acrylic cabochon setting. Swarovski crystals and brass chain hold it all together.

Seventh, Wings of Justice

Brass Lady Justice stamping attached to a pair of brass wings. A three toned gradation of dark grey to clear crystal Swarovski crystals make up part of the chain.

Whoo, been busy!

Thanks Michela! I'm fond of the Petits Fours earrings too, unfortunately for me I have stretched lobes so I can't wear them. Haha.
I'm always making pretty earrings and have no use for them. Smiley

I absolutely LOVE the second pair of earrings! They are perfectly lovely in every way. Everything else you've created is gorgeous, too. I really like the cobalt blue pearls.
