|Blue Globe earrings by Bay Moon Design|
On Bead Table Wednesday, I am showcasing earrings that I completed. I decided to create some new earrings for my upcoming Fall jewelry shows. I revisited the website of the very first jewelry supply company that I used --Aunties Beads. When I first started making jewelry about 10 years ago, what drew me to Aunties Beads was their great website, a variety of products, design center, great customer service, and quick and inexpensive shipping. I had some jewelry components that I wanted to use and I was in need of some basic supplies and very specific items. Their easy to use website with a variety of supplies really appealed to me. I put together a shopping list, placed an order and went to work creating.
For these blue globe earrings I used Aunties Beads 22 gauge silver plated head pins and The head pins were easy to wire wrap onto chain. Since I had 16 head pins to wire wrap this was important to me. I added some of Aunties Beads 21 gauge silver filled earwires with 3 mm coil earwires that were simple and didn't steal the show from the blue blue globes and crystal.

I have some rectangular cultured sea glass that I have been wanting to add some charms to in order to create some earrings. I have been anxious to see what Aunties Beads had in the way of charms and I am happy to report that they have a large selection. I used silver TierraCast anchor charms that are 19 mm. The secret to attacking the charms to the glass is using size 9 jump rings. These blue anchor earrings were created with Aunties Beads 20 mm silver filled fancy earwires. I needed some earwires with some size and I love the large curve in them. I love the way they look with the rectangular glass and curves of the anchor.
