Hello! I've been working on some swaps lately and it's motivated me to finally use up some of my great jewelry stash on some things I can actually wear.

These rings are all from findings I've had lying around FOREVER, or old clip on earrings from my great-grandmother that weren't my style to wear. Got the idea from a local vintage store...the best thing is you can make two of each!

Some close-ups:

And these are some fabulous earrings I've made from beads I either had or got at Michael's or on eBay.

Yes--they're all clip-on backs. I don't have pierced ears. I really wish there were better resources out there for us hole-less gals...Sad

And the obligatory cat-shot. Mookie's internet debut!

C&C welcome...thanks for looking!

These are so unique and original! I would love every single one of those rings. I especially like the green flower and the peacock. Beautiful stuff!

The clip-on earring idea is marvelous!

My advice: get your ears pierced.

I love the rings, the peacock especially. And the earrings? Well I like the designs, but I spent forty years wearing clip-on earrings, and they sure hurt! Getting your ears pierced only hurts once! I wish I had mine done years before I did!

I also love the peacock and I concur that clip-ons hurt!! I had pierced ears for years when I was younger but got tired of hacing them so I removed the studs. The holes never closed!

Mookie is also really cute!
