Day 5- today was a toughie, well at least for me. You should you have more time on the weekends to complete something more complex. So I decided to wire wrap these cabochons that have been staring at me for weeks asking when their turn was. Well today I told them it was their turn to be turned into something new. I have been wanting to wire wrap these little white howlite cabochons for a while and finally did it. I love the look of these earrings. I have some more cabochons like them that I also plan on wire wrapping into earrings the same way. Thanks for stopping by.

Yeah, it's day 4 and I'm still keeping up with the challenge. I did notice it is taking longer each day to complete my piece. So, it will really be a challenge for the weekend. At first, I thought I would just make earrings. Now I have decide to mix it up a bit and make a little something different everyday. If you like rings, I have a Lapiz Lazuli ring in sterling silver. Thanks for stopping by!

Today, I have a pair of earrings called "Rose Petals" earrings. These have glass flower bead caps with 6mm siam ab swarovski crystals. I really love the way they turned out, because it took me quite a while to decide what crystals I would like to adorn these little babies.

It is day 2 of the challenge. My challenge is to make and add a new item a day to my etsy site for 30 days. Well, today I have a sterling silver and crystal anklet. It the perfect time to start thinking about wearing an anklet with the spring weather approaching. Many people are already starting to think about get their tanning sessions going so they have that summer glow. Of course, those people wouldn't be seen with a naked ankle. I hope you have time to browse my shop and thanks for stopping by my blog.

I found a new challenge that is going to be fun and hopefully profitable. I saw in the forum Bittersweet wanting to start a challenge that will last a month. In this challenge we will each create a new item and list it in our shop, post it to flickr and the thread.
I was really up for a challenge and thought it would be fun. I need to add some new jewelry to my shop, so this will help with my motivation. I want to start rotating some of my jewelry around and take some of my older listings to the shop I consign my jewelry. So this will work out perfect.
Here is today's piece. These are a pair of chandelier earrings in gold tone with hematite beads and glass ivory saucer beads.

These blue crystal earrings are one of newest additions to my shop. I designed these with the idea of blue shades always coordinate well with many wardrobe accessories. I know a lot of people enjoy wearing blue jeans and some added sparkle is even better. Well, they are made in all sterling silver with an oval wire design and 4mm swarovski crystals are wire wrapped up the length of these earrings. More views can be seen here. Thanks for stopping by and browsing my blog.
