"I Change My Mind As Often As I Change My Shoes"

Jetta again...I am here with my latest earring adventure.

I love the idea of getting several looks from one design. I have taken this idea to make necklaces become bracelets or two necklaces, but never earrings. So I played around with some ideas and came up with three Halloween/Fall/Gothic looks.

The first pair I am giddy to show because I used some of my newest Jetta Bug Jewelry ghost charms. I wanted to glam them up for an unexpected look. I had some vintage rhinestone sections of chain that was connected with jump rings. So I took two sections off and added even more glam with my newest ear wires from Lucy Haslam of Faery Stone. I used figure 8 jump rings and some tiny lobster clasps so I could just clip on charms to match my mood...bring on the charms!!



 

 
 
 I really thought I would be all over the place on what style the next charms would end up being. I guess because I started out with a Gothic feel I just kept being drawn to something not normally paired with rhinestones.
I found these darling matte chocolate brown ceramic hearts from Scorched Earth. Paired with the rhinestones and those amazing dark patina ear wires I could see these being glam enough to go with a little black dress or posh with jeans.




And last, but not least, I dubbed these Witch's Fingernails! Aren't these enamel charms fantastic?? I stumbled on this little shop that sells lampwork beads and enamel charms called Verre et Cuivre . She is in France and I love everything she makes. I highly recommend giving her shop a visit. I have been dying to use these charms and next to the rhinestones I am in love.



I hope you have a great week filled with creativity and beads,
Jetta

  7. The similarity ends with the rhinestones, right? But every pair works perfectly! I love them all. I'd wear them all. And you have truly inspired with the glam. Thanks for a great post!
