Trifle earrings are a little not a lot, but still worth more than a jot. Perfectly petite pops of color for your lobes...
I have been on a bead and wire wrapping kick. I have all these really lovely beads, and they've just been sitting in their boxes.
So, I combined larger gemstone beads with smaller beads on top. Just a little something. You know...a trifle.
The first two pair I made have reddish "berries" on top. I love that deep red color in the wintertime especially. I'm not sure why. I guess it just goes with the season.
Then 4 pair of Guidepost earrings. The sterling silver had been acid etched with a random dot pattern, and then I sawed them into different shapes. Such small beacons of light need a riot of color I felt.
I have one more pair coming. Sometime today. Maybe. It's stormy, and I don't know if I'll be able to get good pictures.
I have had a lot of fun with these earrings, but I've wire wrapped so many beads, that when I close my eyes. I still see little wire wrapped beads. And my carpal tunnel is all flared up too.
I think it will be back to smithing for the next shop update! ;)
