More earrings

I made more earrings today. The photos were taken with my phone so they aren't too great. I'll re-take the pics when I have time later in the week. I'm thinking of listing both earrings in my Etsy shop but am not too sure if I need to tweak them first. I'd love it if you could drop a line or two to tell me what you think. 

Dyed Howlite discs, pewter spacers, polymer clay charms handmade and gifted to me by Maybeline Tay of The Jewelry Larder.

Paper beads by the awesome Gillian McMurray, orange cord, gold Czech beads and brass spacers.

Patina inks and earrings

If you're wondering where my BSBP7 Reveal post is, don't worry, it's here.

Before you go haring off to check out what I made, you might want to take a look at these new earrings. I succumbed and bought myself a few bottles of Vintaj Patina Inks. I unearthed a pair of brass frames I've had for the longest time and had a fine old time dabbing/painting the inks on. This is the result:

A couple of Swarovski pearls for the centres and some copper-tone ear hooks and I've got me a pair of vaguely vintage-y earrings. I call them Springtime Bouquet.

Thank you & a giveaway

Thank you all so much for your kind, generous comments about my BSBP pieces. I'm (very) slowly making my way through the 3rd Reveal - and the 2nd and the 1st - and leaving my own comments on your blogs. It may take me all year but I'll get there in the end. Till then, please know I appreciate every comment that I receive.

I was tickled by the fact that so many of you liked Caliban's Treasure - my 'unpretty' fishnet earrings. You guys are too funny! In view of the love you've showered on my decidedly odd earrings, I'm holding a giveaway - of Caliban's Treasure itself! Leave a comment below and I'll pick a random winner on 12 May (Sun). I'm willing to ship internationally so everyone is welcome to try. Best of luck!
