This is my first post of one of my projects, so here goes:

First I have a pair of blue cluster earrings.



Then a pair of green cluster earrings. They are almost the same as the blue but are a bit shorter. I really like these ones.



Finally, here is my version of the popular cluster ring. I twisted 20 gauge wire for the main part of the ring and added the black and dark silver beads.



And here is the "set" all together!



Thanks for looking. Smiley

Pretty pretty pretty! I like how you use beads of different shapes & sizes for the clusters, and the black silver beads really made the black ring stand out. Oh, and I like the color of your nail polish too Smiley Red...

Thanks! I've been enjoying making clusters of beads. Its quite easy and so perdy. As for my nails, I angled the camera so it wouldn't capture the chipping ones .  Wink

Thanks! Yep, it is one long piece of wire. I just bent it in half and twisted it with a pair of pliers while holding the big loop end, then I trimmed the end and made a loop. It's pretty easy, the hard part is getting both earrings to be the same length. Smiley

I love the green earrings. Those greens would quite possibly have to be some of my favourite colours.

I've made two new rings. I love the blue and green beads so much, so I made two rings with those colors. They match the earrings but I wouldn't really wear them together. I'm planning on giving them as Christmas gifts. Smiley





There is also a new pair of earrings but my camera just died, so maybe later. Cheesy
