Beaded earrings are back!

Hey remember when I was really into making earrings for awhile?  Yeah that was fun, what happened?!  I don’t know, but a few friends and I had a jewelry party the other night and I made 6 pairs!  (I forgot to include the 6th in the line-up because I was wearing them.)

I want to take better photos of them all, but I know if I wait till that’s done I’ll end up never blogging about them… so someday if I end up shooting them, the photos will go into my beading flickr set.  Anyway, I love how full my earrings frame holder thing is looking these days!

Such an improvement from when I first made it:

(Side note: that awesome Lee button was given to me by the fabulous Susan Beal, author of Bead Simple, which was the book that got me into beading in the first place!)

If this inspires you at all, be sure to check out my Craftstylish tutorial on easy 2-bead earrings.  I’m excited to start making (and wearing!) them again – I’ve collected a huge stash of beads (thanks to Knittn’ Kitten mostly) so I see lots of beading in 2010!

    Cute! I really like your collection.

    I think I might have to make a few pairs myself.

    Wicked awesome! Glad you’re back into beading. Funny how circular crafting is, eh?
