Another pair of earrings!

So I made another pair of earrings that are a little heavier than the others:

They're really pretty, though, and these are probably the easiest I have made so far because instead of using eye pins, I just used some wire I had lying around. The hardest part for me is actually not making the earrings, bu thinking about what they should look like.

Jewelry Mania

Yesterday I went to Michael's and bought this cool glass beading caddy thing. Here are some pictures of it (With captions!):

That's the top part of it which apparently contains "fashion beads" according to the tag!

Below are some detachable containers with millions of seed beads. While pretty and mind-boggling to think about what you could do wit them, it's pretty hard to close the lid since the SBs (seed beads) keep on getting stuck between the two hinge-ish things.

I used this one the most probably. The colors are really pretty, but they aren't as vibrant when you string them on something :(

Cool colors are definitely my favorite and I especially like blue.

Metallic colors are good for standing out on darker skin, but there are also not very vibrant.

Below is some jewelry that I made in one day which I will never do again 'cause now my fingers are all red and raw. The bracelet took me a while, but the earring were really fast.

These are pretty, but I prefer longer ones that are teardrop shaped.
These are the most recently made; I am wearing them right now :)

The background is made of graph paper from last year's math notebook because I didn't want to get myself in the picture and I was too lazy to get the camera, so I just sat on the couch and used Photo Booth. Which is why there is a cushion in some of the pictures.

Thanks for reading!
