Celeste Earrings

As the craziness of December is finally over, or is at least winding down... I find myself able to go back to all those projects that I didn't have time or energy to finish... and here is one of those project.

Believe it or not the earrings were almost finished a long time ago, all I had to do is attach the top part to the bottom.... would you believe it if I told you that it took me over 3 weeks to actually sit down and do it?!?! talk about procrastinating... I'm almost ashamed! :-)  I don't know why but there are times when the design is so close to completion and nothing on this earth would actually make me sit down to finish it! why??? I'm not lazy... there are just so many distractions... mainly in my head, with ideas for new pieces... and I just have to move on to the next piece.... it's all very well, until I find myself confronted by tons of pieces that are in the almost-finished-stage... with still more stuff cluttering my little brain! :-)

Anyway, here they are: Celeste Earrings - Bead-embroidered around white Quartz and Jade cabochons in gold glass beads and greeny-blues Swarovski crystals - I just LOVE them!!!! I wish I had learnt how to bead while I was out and about partying in my 20s and 30s... I would have worn these to death!!! :-) now my idea of partying, is cuddling up under the duvet in front of the telly and hoping for 6 hours of sleep! :-) not much need for ear decorations :-)

Tomorrow I will post the Blue Lagoon necklace.... I'm still working on the photos... till then... happy beading!!! :-)

  2. These are breathtaking, simply inspiring beyond belife. I hope one day to learn how to do this as I have about 200 or so carats of various stones just sitting here. I even have a ~ 15 cm round Ruby Cab that I bet you could make into something heavenly.
    Thank you for allowing us to see these, they so rock! Would you ever consider teaching this technique?

  3. I know what you mean about having so many ideas you just have to leave some things in progress forever so you don't loose your inspiration for the new stuff! The earrings and bracelet are gorgeous by the way!

  5. Triz, those are gorgeous as ever. Celeste is a beautiful name for them, and I think they would match with the Blue Lagoon bracelet well...
