Neutral Bling

I love using hand components in my designs so I thought I'd share a few in today's post.  The beautiful and extremely versatile pewter hands are by Inviciti.  I used the same blank for the back and used the hands in 2 different ways.  I hope you like them.

In this pair I attached large rhinestones and seeds to brass blanks using copper wire.  My attempt at 'sewing' metal :D.  In the original version I had 2 more lines of seed beads in space above the hands but the earrings looked really busy.  I love OTT designs but it wasn't working in this instance so I removed those 2 lines.  I think they look neater and the empty space brings down the bling by just the right amount.

For the second pair I attached the hands directly on to the blank, framed with opal white cup chain which also act as dangles.  I added little seed bead dangles on either side of the chain to complete the look.

So there you have it.  My attempt at making 'sewn' (softly) blinged up earrings.  These will be available in my show next Tuesday in The Jewellery Show FB group.  Hope you cam drop by.

  4. Suhana, these are SO wonderful! They look like magical blingy cathedrals. 💗

  5. Wow. Super cool. You have such an inimitable style. I love the way you pull things together. I think these would also be super cool as mismatched earrings!
    Enjoy the day! Erin
