New Earrings Monday '15: Weeks 7 & 8

Welcome back to New Earrings Monday!  Sarajo of SJ Designs came up with the wonderful idea to make at least one pair of earrings every week and then to share them every second Monday.  I jumped onto the bandwagon a bit late but it has encouraged me to make up some earrings.

I picked up some delightful charms from JKD Studios (which is having sale on all kinds of destash and art beads) which has a real Art Deco feel to them.  I combined them with lapis fossil coral beads and magnesite to make this pair of earrings.  I am still debating whether I am going to put these up for sale or keep them for myself as I love the colors.  (edited to add:  I am actually going to add them to the prize package for Spring Fashionista 2015!)

These earrings feature lotus flower charms from Kristi Bowman, beautiful garnets in a rich marsala color and copper handmade findings.  You can find them up at Shaiha Designs.

  1. LOVE both pairs this week, Shaiha! I'm not sure I could let go of that first set either... they are some of my favorite colors too and take me back to the Bead Cruise and tropical waters. You've created the perfect compliment to Kristi's charms in the second pair too. Swoon! Thanks for playing along with me!

  2. Beautiful earrings, Shaiha! I love the colors and the way you feature the beads. I too think you should keep the blue ones.

  3. ooooh I really love those lotus earrings! gorgeous design
