I’ll post more pictures of my studio soon, but I finally got my bead/metal table organized and this was my first project last night.

Thanks to Judy for all the cool metal stampings, I had a new stash of loot to explore! And I went for something western themed.

Here they are on my ear so you can see the scale. They’re longer than usual for me but I like them, and I’m wearing them to work today šŸ™‚

I made the “turquoise” and “coral” from polymer, so even though they’re 4 inches long, they’re really light weight.

I made the ear wires from 20 gauge spiraled (it comes that way) SS wire. Not something I would have considered before, but the texture in the ear wires keeps them from slipping out which has always been a problem for me. I would probably go for 21g next time though – they’re just a tiny bit thick.

And here’s what my bead table looked like after an hour or two šŸ˜‰
