The one about my earrings


I used to think making jewelry looked so very boring! Last month I bought a few things to make some earrings for quick gifts (or so I thought). Now I am hooked. I really don't remember when I changed my mind, though. I was in and out of Michael's that day with the materials to make the earrings. Next thing I know, I am shopping Etsy for more stuff! I think my friend Rena asked me if I was just dating, or something like that, when she saw I was playin' with beads. It made me laugh. I'll have to ask her what it was she said, exactly.

I make earrings late in the evenings while watching Ghost Hunters. Of course, all my jewelry has to have that vintage look. :) If my metal materials aren't antiqued or oxidized already, I do it myself. :)

So, to introduce my designs, and since it's my birthday this month, I am having kind of a sale at Etsy. I'll be 25 again this year, so all my earrings are 25 percent off thru the month of December. Place your order, put BIRTHDAY in the "Message from the buyer" section when checking out, but do not pay until I send you a revised paypal invoice reflecting the sale price.

Since I'm talking jewelry, I want this bracelet. hee hee

So pretty, Mare!

How do you make your metal look more vintage- paint or what do you use?

I would like the twilight bracelet sans the Jacob representation.

I am impressed at your talent!! That is awesome that you have found a new love. My husband hates it when that happens to me!! He he he!

Marilyn!
When I saw you at our last art group making jewelry I was surprised because I knew you didn't like jewelry making. And so I asked you about your new found obsession: "Are you in love, or just dating?!"

Love, LOVE your pieces...

Love, Rena
