Jewelry for Stitchers (like us...)

I've been tinkering again ~

every now & then I have to create something 'hard' ~
meaning, not from fabirc or thread...
so I head to my trusty stash of stuff.

here are a couple pair of earrings,
or "earbobs" as they were called in the 1800's~

this first pair is made from sterling thread spool & needle charms,
Antique mother of pearl Buttons, Tiger's Eye bead, sterling wire & French leverback hooks...

they have a drop of about 1 1/2" from the hook...

and these,
made from Brass Stork Scissors charms, Brass wire,
Antique Bone & Mother of Pearl buttons,

with brass fish hook earrings...
these have a drop of about 2 1/2" from hook ~

I love making them !
they are available in my
Etsy Shop
and look for more to be added this afternoon...

~ Hoping you all have a wonderfully creative day!!!

Blessings from the Farm...

P.S. ~ I forgot to mention that I have added a conversion chart to my sidebar,
to help you convert Gentle Art Sampler Threads to DMC & vice-versa!!!
