*tests the internet*
I'm going to try to make this quick, before the internet goes away again... I just wanted to show off a jewelry set that I just made! (And I'm so excited, that I'm going to make ALL of the photos extra large, heehee.)
So, yes. Those are the earrings.
I paired Swarovski rivolis with some handmade lampwork beads, by the one and only Juls of Julsbeads. I love the color combination--and how the shades shift and shimmer in the light.
Oh, and I made a matching necklace, too.
...Here's a close up of the earrings, one more time.
So, why does this set have me so excited?
First of all--Julsbeads! And Swarovskis! What's not to love? It's always nice to work with such rich materials... Enough to make me spoiled.
And, secondly--I was actually inspired to make this set. And I enjoyed doing it! This may not seem like a big deal to some, but there have been so many times recently where I've sat at my beading table and made nothing. The excitement, and the desire, just wasn't there--sapped out of me, drained dry by some sort of creative exhaustion.
But, these last few days, it's like something has snapped--and the joy is back. Hopefully, this is the first set of many new creations!
...And, now, back to bead organizing. Happy Friday everyone! I hope your weekend is full of laughter and beautiful things!
