An Item A Day - Day 24

Okay, I admit it.  I put this pair on last evening.   I was so excited about how they turned out I couldn't wait to get them on Etsy.   There is the evening shoppers I miss when I only upload in the morning, right?   

Not only did they turn out great but I got to play with power tools!  I love power tools.  So what if it was only my little Dremel?   I learned I can alter the filigree by using different tips on it.   The beads in this pair are long and thin.  They were begging for more than just somthing sitting on top of them.  Sure, I could have ordered different filigree, but where's the fun in that?  I cut and filed and had a wonderful time adjusting filigree I already had to create these beauties.

Create a mood with these soft red floral earrings. 

Two styles of floral beads accented with bronze and gold colored filigree.

Hanging from a bronze French ear wire they dangle about 1 1/2 inches or 42 mm.

WOW! I'm impressed. And I thought you just strung beads! DUH!

Another beauty, Sandy. This color is gorgeous. I love a muted red. And it DOES look like a flower. I also like that you have it resting on a music sheet which is very inspiring. Hmmm. I may create something from this!!!

Have a fabulous day!
