Earrings For Mom

Have you ever made something that's completely different from what you usually do? I don't mean different crafts, but a different style. I made two pairs of earrings as a present for my mom, which are completely different from what I usually do. I love how they turned out, but they are so not me, and so not my shop. I think.

I made them using square pieces of pressed wire (???) that I found in the craftstore, and more wire and beads. I never really used wire before, so it was quite a challange for me to get it through the other wire, and blend it in, while having the beads in the right spot at the same time. But I managed!

Earrings for my mom!

My mom is super happy with her new earrings! I have to admit though, I did feel like I was back in kindergarten, the days of making clay ashtrays as presents for my parents.

What do you think? Would they fit in in my shop, and would people who like my other goodies love these too, or would they stand out too much?

  1. Those are really nice :) I think they would fit in your shop very nicely, the pressed wire is very striking so would def. catch a person's eye. Not much to lose if they don't sell.

  2. Yes I think they could fit in your shop..But in my honest opinion, instead of the black bead, I can sort of see a little heart dangling instead, or cherries!

  4. That's so sweet of you! :) And they are very pretty! I think it's important to step out of the regularity once in a while! I'm glad your mom likes them!!

  7. i think they fit ok, just as long as you keep the background in the photography pink so there's a cohesiveness!

  8. I agree with nuvonova. I really like the wire part but if you hung something a little more graphic or edgy like the other things in your shop it would fit in quite nicely!

  10. I love those. Very unusual. At first I thought you had used paper clips.

    Have you thought of making a "convertible" line -- where the bottom beads are interchangable?
