Time to say goodbye - for now

Hi lovelies.
Yes, it is time for me to say goodbye. At least, as a regular blogger here on Earrings Everyday.
After two years I feel it is time for me to step aside and make room for other talented jewelry artists. There are so many very talented jewelry artists around, who have beautiful earrings to share with you.

In this last regular post I like to share with you a design I have been making over the years. It is a perfect way to use up left-over beads or just showcase a combo of beads you love. You can just about use any beads you like, in any color combo.

My first pair, made in 2010. Using Aventurine briolettes, Swarovski crystal and Swarovski pearls.

















A pair I made a couple of years back. I still wear these in summer. 


Normally I use ready made rings, but this time I made them myself with sterling silver wire. That's why they look a bit, well, what shall I say, not perfectly round. But that is what I like about handmade items. They are not perfect. Just as we all are. We are perfectly imperfect and that makes us all unique and beautiful.


I had some left over briolettes (Labradorite, no idea what the other one's are), sterling silver beads and rice pearls. voila, my beloved charm earrings.


Thank you all for looking. Thank you for the love I received from you readers and my friends here on earrings everyday. It was heart-warming. It kept me from slipping into a deep depression after my parents passed away. Thank you all, you are a wonderful bunch!

  11. It's difficult for me to say goodbye to you, Janine. . . . so I am not going to. I will just say "so long". I will miss your regular presence here very much. You are one of the kindest, most genuine, caring women I have had the pleasure to get to know. All of that came through in your posts, and your dedication to commenting on each and every single post that graced this board. You are unique and a very special woman. Please don't be a stranger. You have a place here anytime you choose to. You make beautiful earrings, too! :) Much love. n
