She Sells Sea Shells


Well, it took me a little longer to get these done than I anticipated.  Seems like I’ve picked up the shakes when doing fine handwork.  Very tricky threading a needle when my fingers are shaking in opposite directions.  But I got three pair of earrings done before I quit for the day.  Not sure I really like the results.  I’d be interested in any opinions.

First set I did. I sort of like these.

Another view of set one.  These are very long, I haven't measured, but they're likely close to 3" long.

This was my second attempt.

These were actually a mistake. Some beads fell off as I finished the first one, and had to make a second to match. They were originally to be my second set.
These were actually a mistake. Some beads fell off set two, and did not realize until I finished the first one. Rather than waste the materials by taking it apart, I decided to make a second to match. Then I went back and created a second earring for set two.
Another view of set three.  These seem a bit plain to me.

I’ll probably put these up for sale in my online store, even though I don’t care for some of them, others might.  Right?

I have been on WordPress more regularly lately, and bringing out my jewelry making supplies and working with my hands has started to make me feel much better.  I’ll have to try doing more tomorrow, earlier in the day, maybe my fingers won’t tremble so bad.

  1. I think they are all nice, even the ones that have only one blue bead. There is something just right about the colour of blue, and the lack of any other adornment. It seems to set a mood, I think. Definitely put these on your site (if you haven’t already… I am so tardy commenting). I’ll bet someone will be drawn to each pair.
