Baby steps, baby blues

I do like blues. Did I say that somewhere already in this blog? Never mind, it's true.

These earrings are made from two sweet, slightly-mismatched little Czech glass hearts, paired with little crystals that my sister gave me. I named my son after her, by the way. Or I named her after my son. Or something. I think actually time short-circuited itself somewhere because I get those two names mixed up all the freaking time, even though I actually know they are different people.

Anyway, enough talk about baby names and back to the earrings. For a change, my wire-wrapping here was actually quite neat (woo! maybe I am getting better at this wirework thing after all - baby steps!). I made these earrings small and light because these sterling earwires can be a bit bendy and I didn't want the earrings to fall out and get lost.

My next aim is going to be to try hammering wire to make it stronger. The problem is, most of my wire is silver-plated copper, and I predict that it might look rather rubbish when hammered. Maybe I need some different wire... Hmm, I can feel a shopping trip coming on!


  1. Pretty earrings! I finally found someone who loves heart earrings as much as I do!

  2. This made me smile! You do get us mixed up a lot but I don't mind. I think these earrings are very sweet, and perfect for days when you don't want too much going on around your earlobes.
