My favourite jewelry piece – JAC Blog Carnival

Is what this months blog carnival from Jewelry Artisans Community is about.
I think you all know by now what my favourite jewelry pieces are.

The jewelry that I make most, of course are earrings, why you ask, well because I don’t go out of the house without earrings on, without them I feel naked.
Of course I do wear necklaces and bracelets but those I don’t wear every day, I wear those on special occasions like a birthday or going out with friends.

The main reason why I love making earrings is that whenever I buy new beads or components the first thing I do with them is make me a pair of earrings.
Some of the earrings I make take me about 10 to 15 minutes while others could take me up to an hour. It all depends on the technique and the design I use.  You can see some of the techniques and designs I use below.

Here are a few of the earrings I made that already made it into my Shop.

    Beautiful earrings! I always am amazed with the variety in designs you come up with, there’s really no pair looking the same even when you use similar techniques. Pretty amazing!

    I can see by looking at your photos how much you love making earrings, Carina! Beautiful examples of your skills and eye for detail and so nice to have many pairs of earrings to wear no matter what the occasion. Now that I know how much you enjoy making them, I will think of you as the “earring lady” in the future!

    Lovely earrings, Carina!
    I am not a big fan of making earrings, often because I don’t work with a plan and sometimes when I have to make the second one I don’t even remember how I made the first one! 😉

      Thank you for your comment, Catrin.
      That’s one of the reasons I don’t make a lot of wirewrapped earrings,
      I never get them identical. 🙂

    Your earrings are gorgeous! I love making them as well, because they are just such fun accessories and usually don’t take a long time, not to mention that the possibilities are endless.
