Zesty Lemon Curd

Snowstorm outside my window today. I am so happy I don't have to leave my home. As a contrast I have instead played with those large and bright yellow facetted acrylic beads. I love them. Got them very cheap at a clean out sale in an online Swedish shop some weeks ago. I only wish I had bought more of them. Aren't they great. Sometimes I don't understand why things are not popular with other people.

I am very into larger and longer earrings lately. These fulfill those requirements. The materials make them still very lightweight.

I strung the yellow acrylic beads on 4-ply ochre waxed linen cord together with size 11 matte gold  metallic sead beads and egg shaped white distressed resin beads. They are attached to the handmade earrings hooks  in heavily oxidized Sterling Silver via square profiled pewter rings.

All my best,


  1. These are bold and beautiful Malin. You are the queen in making wonderful earrings with just a few components. Always surprising and new. Love these.

  2. I always look forward to seeing your beautiful earrings! I, too, often questions why the beads that I love are not popular with other people. I guess we should be thankful that we are not all the same! :)

  3. I love them, Malin, as I do everything you make! It's an interesting thing about why some people don't like something we might love, isn't it? Truthfully, if I saw these beads, I likely would have passed them right by. I said the same thing recently to Meridy. And then when I see what you've done with them, I wonder why it is that I don't visualize it as you do. I love the beads and the earrings. And love love the resin beads. I've never seen anything like those. Very creative, the tiny beads in between the two types of beads. Awesome!

  4. These earrings would be perfect to add colour to a white shirt and a gray suit. They are so chic and modern

  5. Wonderful earrings, Malin--chic and edgy and colorful!
