Button Barretts

Boy!  Did I have fun with the hot glue gun!  First, I took  coordinating colored felt and glued it on to the metal French Barrett.  Then, I found buttons that would make cute Barrett’s for both little girls, AND big girls.  I glued the buttons on the felt in a particular design that I liked.  And, VOILA! – a French Barrett for someone special!photo

Spring means flowers!   So, I’ve been working on a few flower designs.  I have one here that is made with lucite beads, seed beads, bugle beads, silver filled wire, silver ear wires and crystals. I’ll be making flower earrings for both adults and children.  The flower designs will be small, medium and large.  There will be more flower designs in my gallery soon.       Happy Spring Everyone!

Mermaid Earrings

Here is a pair of earrings I just finished.  I hand painted the mermaid charms.  They are attached to an iridescent round, polished shell, along with a fresh water pearl.  I used silver filled wire and silver ear wires.  These earrings were really fun to design!Mermaid photo
