Bead Table Wednesday is designed by Heather Powers
to help share what is on our table today. Today I am revealing what I created with some
Vintaj natural brass with various patinas that were applied last week. I made several pairs of earrings with them and still have some left for another time.
|These pieces were on my table last week.|
I love the ocean so I was anxious to make the seahorses into earrings. I rarely make the same piece of jewelry twice. You can see how these 2 pairs of seahorse earrings are similar yet different. Two of the seahorses are paired with ZnetShows
sea glass beads that are a very pale aqua. I used green beads with the second pair of seahorses. The shades of patina on these 2 pair of earrings are slightly different also.
Which pair of the seahorse earrings are your favorite pair?
These brass flower earrings
are for those who are looking for artisan
and earthy earrings. I hung them on gold colored ear wires to highlight
the gold color of the metal that shows through the patina.
are long earrings
that hang 3 inch in length from the top of the
earwires. They are light on the ears. I love the cutouts in the
rectangle. You can see through those areas.
I love purple and green together. My bead stash had just the right shades of the two colors that I was able to use both colors with the metal to create these purple floral earrings
I still have some pieces remaining. It takes me much more time than you might think to find the perfect beads to pair with them. I also like to photograph and list them in my Etsy store
before I blog about them. Plus, I always find photographing my jewelry a challenge. I try to use natural light and have had luck with using a white skylight area in my home for the photos. I have to work around my cat Lucy because he loves to bask in the sun there no matter how hot it may be. He also delights in surrounding himself with my beads, props, and jewelry.

So adorable and annoying!
