New Earrings!

I began this series of earrings last year in December.  They have grown slowly.  All the while I have had a vision of what I wanted these earrings to be.  I wanted the craftsmanship to be perfect.  I must say that I am very pleased with the way they turned out. 

Ornate and elegant.  Sophisticated and beautiful.  Everything I was hoping they would be. 

I do have one problem though.  I envy artists who are able to put into words their exact inspiration.  Inspiration often comes for me as a thought that continues to grow and evolve.  Feelings and emotion all tangled in there as well.  I have trouble defining and communicating my inspirations. 

I began this series while deep in the throes of A Game of Thrones.  I have read all the books, and am currently watching the TV series on DVD.  I've always been fascinated with Kings and Queens,  Ladies and Lords.  The court and the finery.  Gowns and jewelry.  Swords, plate, crowns etc....

One of the reasons I have been so slow to put these up for sale, is that a name for the series escapes me.  I feel that the perfect descriptive name is just beyond my reach and I can't quite put my finger on it.  It's not Victorian, or Renaissance.  It's not Edwardian.   It still eludes me.  Maybe it will come to me and maybe it won't.  In the meantime my work must speak for itself.   Earrings fit for a Lady.

All these earrings have been listed in my Etsy Shop I hope you'll get a chance to stop by and check out the other photos.

Coming soon...

I made a good luck charm. Sterling and lab Emerald. I have a few other green stones and plan on another necklace and maybe a pair of earrings. :)

I have three pairs of really lovely sterling and gemstone earrings that I need to photograph. I've been working on these off and on for the past couple of months.

I'm also currently obsessed with: Game of Thrones. The books and the TV series.
Alaska The Last Frontier.

I'm also avoiding: watching the last several episodes of Downton Abbey.

Doing the taxes.

Have a great week everyone.

Love Necklace


Oh my poor sad, neglected blog!  I'm not sure what my deal is with blogs and blogging lately.  It seems that I have just lost interest.  Pooh!  I only read blogs once in a while now, and as you all know I blog myself even less.  

I've not really been making much since the Christmas rush.  I guess I'm in a bit of a funk.  I did make this necklace with sterling silver and fresh water pearl.  I love the combination of oxidized silver and fresh water pearl.  It is rustic and elegant all at once.  

I am having a Valentine's Day sale in my Etsy shop.  20% off all ready to ship items.  

The social media place I am most active is on Instagram if you want to follow me there.   My account name is AmyNicoleJewelry.  

Have a great day all!
