Pretties for Etsy !

It seems my Etsy shop is needing more goodies ! So I created these lovelies, soon to be listed either Wed. or Thurs.

An image from one of my favorite artists, Erte, graces the domino. Soldered, glittered, little stars and a pretty pink foil backed crystal make this a lovely and shabby fun pendant. Why shabby ? Because for some reason, I had a tough time soldering the bottom jump ring (!!), it took me about 5 times before the darn ring finally stuck urgh. I smoothed out some of the soldering lines/edges with my trusty Dremel and then sponged on some Halo pink Lumiere paint. Pink and black Sharpie pens line some of the edging.

The earrings were made from another pair of earrings ( bought these fabulous Las Vegas style shimmery pink crystal danglers --but they were uncomfortably heavy boohoo, so took them apart and using bits in new creations ). Red glass foil backed crystals, purple anodized aluminum jump rings and purple metal roses add to the brilliance of these earrings. I had to try them on to see how well they looked and was sorely tempted to keep them...but I still have leftovers so will make a smaller pair. The leverbacks will be removed and new ones replaced ( of course ! who wants to wear used earring post ick ).

One more pendant is in the process of being created and then I'll be working on a couple pairs of goofy Halloween earrings.

These are beautiful, Tracy. Did I mention how much I love your little slide show? It's so neat. The music today is a nice acoustic guitar ... but you probably know that!
