Beware the power of my Sonic Seam Ripper!

I've been crafting a lot lately, but seem to have gotten into a rut of making the same things over and over.  In an effort to break out of my uninspired streak, I pulled out my stash of Vintaj supplies, Swarovski crystals, and Czech glass beads, and started playing around last week.  I ended up spending an afternoon happily making lots of new earrings!  And best of all, by the end of it I felt happy and inspired again.  So much so that I spent the next day making pendants from antique keys.  (To be posted shortly!)

Here's what I came up with...

Golden Stars with emerald crystals and pearls.


Emerald Chandeliers


Black Butterflies with purple Czech glass flowers


Silver Birds with purple Czech glass flowers


Black Feathers with milky blue Czech glass bird beads


Copper Chains with milky blue Czech glass flowers


Art Nouveau Ladies with purple Czech glass flowers

That's a wonderful assortment of earring designs--the emerald chandeliers, copper chain/flower, and bird/feather pairs are my favorites, but they all rock!
