Earring of the Week

These sparkly and simple earrings are poised to become favorites of mine. They are just dangly enough...and those silver-backed Swarovski margaritas are just sparkly enough...

I have attached the Swarovski's with headpins, looped on the backs. I intended to add dangles from the loops but then I got the earrings to this point and realized that if they were any bigger I wouldn't wear them. I am sorry to say I have never really jumped back on the giant earring wagon. I can't. My middle-aged earlobes are too tender. I wore gi-ganto earrings in the 80's, thank you very much M'am. Now I want something smaller. Something less painful.

These just fit the bill...perfectly.

Make your own:
Swarovski silver-backed margaritas
brass flower dangle (left and right)
simple brass leverbacks

you'll also need a pair of round nose pliers, a pair of chain nose pliers and a cutter

and seven minutes...
