I have only worn one pair of threader and the chain was much smaller than this. The pair I had were uncomfortable to put on and I am wondering if your ears would have to be a bit gauged to wear these or just go slow putting them on?
Oh goodness no, they're VERY fine and dainty! Even a little girl could wear them. I take very close-up pictures to show detail which can make them appear larger than in reality. They weigh almost nothing and could be worn without any problem. Cheesy



Edit to add....This might help with scale:

Wednesday I hung out with my sister at one of the local malls. It has an ice skating rink in the middle. (Yes! An ice skating rink in a FLORIDA mall. Funny, hu? Cheesy ) I knew that would be a neat thing for Gus to see so I brought him with me.

We had a nice day getting out of the house. Thursday I had a doctor's appointment but he's been to a few of those already so I let him sleep in. Saturday is the big day we've all been waiting for - Walt Disney World! Yay!!

I got the best package from padfoot yesterday! She claimed me for Jean Grey as Phoenix ami but also sent a surprise Lemming!! Grin They are both totally awesome!




And for size reference, I grabbed the only thing nearby which was my remote control. LOL



They're perfect. Thank you so much Padfoot! I've been annoying Love by making Phoenix "fly" around while he sits on the computer and I walked the Lemming off the keyboard tray a few times too. Grin

Well, it's quite the rainy day today! Huge thunderstorms all day long here in normally sunny Florida! Gus wanted to go outside and watch the weather but I told him not without some sort of rain gear. He's not getting a cold on his vacation during my watch! I didn't have any umbrellas his size, so I fashioned him a quickie rain poncho instead.

Here he is out on our 3rd floor balcony on the dining room table we started to sand down but never finished. Ha!



We're not going anywhere though today. It's just too icky outside. But at least this way, Gus got a chance to check out some crazy weather in a safe way!

We had a boring week last week. Didn't really leave the apartment all week. So yesterday, we decided to head out to the movies! We went and saw Captain America. Pretty good. Lots of action, adventure. Gus was enthralled and on the edge of this seat the whole time, but he denied it later saying he's not really "into" comic book movies. Uh-hu, we both know better! Grin






Next weekend we go to Walt Disney World for real. When we went on the 4th of July, it was so crowded, we didn't ride anything and just basically stood around waiting for the fireworks. Next Saturday, we're going with Love's brother to celebrate his birthday and we'll probably hit at least two parks. He's really been looking forward to that! (And me too honestly!)

586  Cherry Blossom Tree of Life Pendant in Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystal in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by phoenixfiredesigns on: August 03, 2011 10:22:30 AM
A Cherry Blossom tree in full bloom was the inspiration for this piece. It's Rainbow Moonstone and Swarovski Crystals in pink sets in sterling silver wire.


Rainbow Moonstone is of course associated with the Moon and with the Goddess Diana. Its a powerful stone said to protect those of a sensitive nature and bring good emotions to the wearer. The moonstone is said to help one perceive that which is and is an excellent choice for meditation or self awareness. Because of its tie to emotions and the moon, its said to be a womans gemstone. Rainbow Moonstone also features a unique inner fire of color and as it catches the light, it shifts through tones of blues and a natural iridescence.


Hidden among the moonstone are eight tiny genuine Swarovski crystal bicones in a warm pink. This gives the piece a look of a Cherry Blossom tree in bloom. It was this image that inspired this pendant. The cool, icy feel of the moonstone and the warm, rich pink crystal just plays off each other really well and makes for a great contrast of Spring and Winter.

587  Aquamarine Tree of Life Pendant in Rose Gold in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by phoenixfiredesigns on: August 03, 2011 10:19:56 AM
A lovely variation on the original March Tree which is set in sterling silver wire, this version is in a non-tarnish Rose Gold wire. Gives a nice contrast between the warmth of the wire and the cool, watery color of the gemstone.


Aquamarine is a natural, semi-precious gemstone in lovely tones of delicate blue. The birthstone of March, it is said to help you be in touch with your spiritual being. Known as Water of the Sea because of its color, aquamarine been used by sailors for centuries to protect them on the water. Its also been long used as a strong meditation aide and when worn as a necklace, it is said to calm and sooth the nerves.

I received 16 awesome zipper pulls from phoenixfiredesigns!  Check these out:

Thanks, PFD!
You're welcome!

I actually tried to give you a full rainbow and then some because I wasn't sure what you needed or could use most. So I thought, hey, why not a little of everything?



I hope you enjoy using them! Grin

I received TWO great packages yesterday!

First up, was some Fox Wall Art by Jo_mama. She made the best fox with a phoenix tail!! She said that the fox needed a little phoenix in it and it's just perfect!!



It's so well done. I love the expression and the details of the fire on the tail. Thank you, I love it!!


Second was a fox hoop AND bat shirt from MollyGirl!







The fox hoop is really cute and I LOVE the bats! I tried to get a photo of me wearing it but it looked like I was just taking a picture of my boobs. LOL So nevermind. But it fits great. Thank you for making both really great items for me! Grin

590  Rainbow Gemstone Sterling Silver Threader Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by phoenixfiredesigns on: July 25, 2011 03:30:41 PM
Six genuine gemstones (ruby, yellow sapphire, emerald, blue topaz, amethyst and white topaz) form a rainbow of color on sterling silver ear threads.


The gemstones used in the piece starting from the bottom are:

* Ruby one of four precious gemstones and the birthstone of July

* Yellow Sapphire Another of the four precious gemstones, sapphire comes in many colors including this lovely yellow. Traditionally blue sapphire is the birthstone of September.

* Emerald the third precious gemstone in this piece, emerald is the birthstone of May and an amazing green stone without peer.

* Blue Topaz A semi-precious stone, blue topaz has a crystal clear blue sky color. Its an alternative birthstone for December.

* Amethyst Long associated with royalty, amethyst is a gorgeous and rich purple tone. This semi-precious stone is the birthstone of February.

* White Topaz White topaz is a flawlessly clear crystal stone. Its used as an alternative to diamond for Aprils birthstone. Also semi-precious.


Threader style earrings allow you to adjust how long or short you wish to wear them. The gemstones measure about .25″ in length and the total length of the threader plus gems is right around 3.25″ I put them together with the extra gems leftover after other projects. Grin More details and larger pics here in my blog.
