Before Christmas I made lots of pairs of lampwork beads, playing with a new design that had been tinkering at the edge of my imagination for a while. This week I finally got around to actually making them into earrings and I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. I am finally starting to find the balance between making beads and making jewellery.
I am really pleased with the earrings, some in a new conical design and some of my favourite Lampwork Jewels design, both are really pretty. They will be listed in the shop next Thursday but if you want a sneak peek make sure you're signed up to my email list. My list gets first look of all my new work and it's where I put all my best offers and often have free worldwide shipping discounts.
Next on the agenda I'm going to make a batch of earring wires and headpins in Argentium silver so next time I go on an earring jag I will be using all my own findings. I love using Argentium silver, it has a bit more silver content and is highly tarnish resistant, also it's a dream to work with.
