Those are all really pretty!  They're a bit bigger than I'd usually wear, but really pretty! I agree with pixieval that the top ones are my favorite pair, though the chainmail balls and the bottom pair are tied for second.  Smiley

Thank you all so much for the compliments! I love wire and finally feel like I am getting the "hang" of it as far as working with it goes. I wanted to include another (better) picture of the first set of earrings. This shows them hanging.


Thanks again! I am glad you are enjoying them.

Love them all!!! I think the first and fourth ones are my fav. I really liked how you incorporated the beads into the design on the first one.

Wow the first ones are amazing and the last ones are so unique!  If you would have done the first pair with green beads it would look like a peter pan fern with dew drops on it.  I also really like how you put the bead in the middle of the chain maille ones. 

I hope that you post a tutorial for the first ones.
Great job!

The first pair of earrings made me enter here and look at your work, but the last pair, the green ones made me fall in love, they are so original.
Great job! This rocks! XD

WOW! Thank you all so much for the positive feedback! The first pair was def. the hardest of the lot. Making a bunch of straight wire turn into that is kinda complicated! In fact, the first earring took me about three days to perfect... the second one... 15 minutes! LOL

The last pair is quite unique and I am so glad that the feedback has been positive! I am trying to find a model (besides myself) to wear them for me so that I can take photos of them being worn.

Again, thank you all so much! I love Craftster.

They're all amazing, but I have to say that the last pair is my personal favorite.  These are really cool!

I am really in love with those bottom ones! I bet they'd also work wearing in stretched ears, through a pair of eyelets or tunnels.
