Earrings by Helen  

Sunday, December 16, 2007

This is the book I just got in the post a few days ago and I was anxious to work from it. I has some really nice earring designs, along with different styles of earwires.
I've worked a bit on my earwire skills, the first is a more secure type of regular earwires, as the loops are inside, they hold better the whole wire in the ears.
The second is a pair of ball-post earrings. There are people who don't like the long earwires due to the way their ears are pierces (ex. too large holes, etc), so I will get my skills up and offer some ball-post earrings as well in my shops. I will use smaller pearls in the wire, as when I tried out my prototype, I had a feeling like I had two earrings in my ear, lol. It's quite interesting though.

    Wow. Making you own ballposts. I'm impressed. I'm too lazy - I just buy them, although the price of silver is just ridiculous these days. To think only a few months ago I got it for under $12, not it's over $14!

    Keep up the great work. I've been reading, but not commenting much but I really enjoy seeing what you're making.
