Reveal for Earring Blog Hop!

Thanks  are deserved by Jessica of Whimsical Monkey for coming up with this idea and organizing it for all of us. Unfortunately it seems there are people who were unhappy with the rules and took it out on her.  She certainly doesn't deserve grief for organizing this.  The rules were very clear from the beginning.This stuff is just supposed to  be fun ! Thanks again, Jessica!!!!!
These blog hops are great for our community and encourage everybody to reach out to other jewelry makers and share our enthusiasm for this art.
I was paired up with Leah Tees, a jewelry artist from northern Ontario, who does incredible work with seed beads including soutache ! I am in awe of her talent and style. It was a challenge to make something for her since our styles are completely different. I hope she likes the earrings I sent!

I love,love,love the earrings she made for me.
"Stella" by Leah Tees
They are gorgeous , lacy and elegant.....perfect for a little black dress! If I had one! I might have to get one! She used rizo and rulla beads, delicas and crystal drops!
Aren't they stunning? My photographs don't do them justice. They remind me of delicate squares of beautiful black lace with gorgeous pale purple crystals dangling from them. They suit me to a "T". 
Thanks Leah.... I will cherish them forever.
Now hop over to her blog to see what I made for her. and visit the other participants blogs and see what they made and swapped.

Thank  you for looking and for your comments if you feel so moved!!!


  1. They are so elegant and original, I still have to try rizo beads and this is a great idea to use them!!!

  2. They are very elegant indeed!!

  3. Wow! Yes, definitely get a black dress. Though I would probably wear them with everything. Thanks for participating!

  4. I would so wear those! I have way too many black clothes (though, can you ever have too much black?) and those would be perfect. I have always admired people who can take small beads like that and build what is, in essence, a bead sculpture. So very cool.

  5. The earrings you made Leah are whimsical and elegant.

  6. What fun earrings you received! Leah is very talented!

  7. Wow, that is so intricate!

  8. Wow, those earrings are incredible! You're right - they're just begging for a little black dress!

  9. Gorgeous! Yep - a little black dress!

  10. Gorgeous! Yep - a little black dress!

  11. What fantastic bead work. Those earrings are incredible. Know you'll cherish them for a long time.

  12. I missed all the drama. I love the earrings. Check out my blog if you have time. Thanks, Andrea

  18. Fashion accessories have a great importance in the lives of people these days. They are a great way to enhance the outfit and the look or personality of people as well women accessories have had a great impact on fashion world these days. It is seen that every kind of fashion and styles demand for different kinds of fashion accessories, to make it a complete one and provide some kind of sense in it. It is seen that women are fonder of fashion accessories rather than men.
