Heyhey!
After months of non-crafting due to work and study, I decided that i needed new earrings (and gifts for friends)! So I made these:

These are my first "upper class" earrings.. Meaning I spent moolah on sterling silver hooks, went searching for high quality fastings, and bought *actual* Swarovski Crystal beads.. They were for a friend who has high end taste, but who is a sweetheart, so was worth the pennies! =)


These are becoming my favourite earrings atm, just coz they're modern, fun and whimsical.. And they remind me of my favourite season- Autumn!


I have to thank craftster for inspiration for these earrings.. I've seen necklaces made from watch parts- but I don't remember who the clever craftster was who came up with the idea... Apologies (& kudos) to that GENIUS!
These are made out of an old swatchwatch (which i bought from ebay for $20! expecting it to work dammit! But the dude sent me a broken watch which wasn't repairable instead... *astard!!! ) Oh well.. the earrings are preeetty snazzy i think!

Anyway, thanks for looking- hopefully i can inspire others too!

the leaf ones are absolutely beautiful. reminds me of something my mother would wear, since she loves those colors, and autumn.

All of your creations are wonderful but OMG I LOVE the autumn earrings!  (It's my favorite season, too!)  What did you make the leaves out of or are they bought?  Huh  I so adore them! 

Big thumbs up! Cheesy

lol!
Thanks guys!

The perspex leaves were in my stash of "useful items which may come in handy sometime in the future" -I just had to drill holes in them.
Unfortunately, i don't really remember where i bought them from.. someplace in Adelaide!

The hoops were bought too- I'm not that talented! lol! =P
