earring creations

Well, I’ve picked up a new hobby, making jewelry. This has been highly encouraged by my husband and friends as I tend to overwork. (Just a little. :-)) My creative side often goes unattended, but creating things is one way I feel refreshed.

So my dear husband got me a jewelry starter kit and I tried making some new earrings and experimenting. I made a pair the other day and this is my second one:

Unfortunately I broke my camera lens so I tried 3 different cameras to try to take this picture. It’s kind of ridiculous that I I had to use my Nikon 80-200 lens and sit 5 feet away from the earrings and zoom in, because it was the only way I could get it to work!

I hung the earrings on a chopstick and rested in on my lamp right under the light (because I don’t have photographic lights). The black background is the back of my daughter’s stackable office letter trays. High budget, you can tell. The photo came out a bit fuzzier than I would have liked, but it gives a general idea of what the earrings look like.

Well, I’m pretty happy about this second try on making earrings, and a first try making spiral loops on the bottom, though there’s room for improvement.

    That looks great!! (And that’s hilarious about zooming in on the earrings!)

    Are those glass or plastic beads or some other type of material?

    The colored ones are glass. The big gold one is metal I think. The little gold one is plastic… but I’m not totally sure, to tell you the truth!
