Earrings - a bunch of my handmade earrings

I thought I'd post the pictures of all the earrings I have made and taken pictures of so far. Not all of them are available in my Etsy shop yet but all of them are for sale. If you have a question or would like to purchase an item please contact me
chloe-louise@hotmail.es or check in my Etsy shop to see if it's listed - http://www.etsy.com/shop/chloebristow

Which ones are your favourites?
Blue Glass Crystal Earrings silver plated with 925 sterling silver earwires. All my earrings have 925 earwires unless otherwise specified. I think this is an important part of quality jewellery.
These are Czech Glass Crystals with Tibetan silver spacer beads. Those little beads in the cluster above the main bead are also Czech glass crystal which are micro faceted. I adore these.

 These are cute little earrings with glass orange seed beads wrapped with very fine silver plated wire onto sterling silver wire. They are only about an inch long and are very sophisticated
 Now these, as you maye have guessed are not sterling silver earwires. They are antique bronze with 12mm glass pearls.



  I made the earwires myself from 925 silver wire and wrapped the Czech glass teardrop crystals with 925 silver square wire. yep, that's right, they are 100% silver.
 The Tibetan silver bows are the same on both sides :) Fresh water pearls and glass crystal bicone beads.
Faux Glass pearls and silver plated bows

Faux glass pearls and little red glass faceted rondelles on antique brass wire and earwires.


Little amber nuggets that I wrapped onto the silver plated circular frame.
 Silver plated cherry earrings with glass faceted red rondelle.
Round imitation turquoise beads with small crackle glass beads on antique bronze.
These are made with an 8mm blue-green czech glass crystal rondelle at the focal point with three 4mm czech glass crystal beads dangling from antique bronze chain.
My glass seed bead cluster earrings are attached with coloured aluminium wire and silver plated jumprings on 925 earwires.
I made the free form frame from silver plated wire, hammered it and wrapped seed beads, a faux acrylic pearl and some little moon dust beads on to it to create these very unique earrings.
Green glass chips with a lovely lustre attached to the trianglar swirl of silver plated wire.
Colour Byzantine chain earrings -  I made each jumpring from colour copper wire and made them into this chain. Very striking and unusual. To finish them off I added a large jumpring holding a frosted glass bead.
Finally! I reach the Green Crackle glass earrings. They are stunning in the way they catch the light.

Which ones do you like the most? I am changing and growing as an artist all the time and I can see a difference in my work over time.
