Here we go......

Let me begin by saying that I am not now,
never have claimed to be,
and never plan in the future being a professional jewelry maker. 

I am a mom. 

A mom who is longing to bring her daughter home from China. 

I am a creative person. 
I love to make things. 
I love color and texture and the satisfaction of completing things.

That said, I have been piddling around a bit with jewelry making.  It's turning into alot of fun!  And for kicks, I thought I would throw a few peices out there to try to contribute to our adoption fund for Abbey.  Here's what I have so far:

Item #1
I was feeling like red today, I guess because it's almost Valentine's Day.  These are made with a matte dark red and clear beads, strung on silver wires. They are 1 5/8 inches long.  I have 3 pairs of these.  They are $10.00/pair.

Item #2
These are a different design with the same shade of matte dark red and "pearlish" beads, strung on silver wires . 
I have one pair of these.
They are 1 1/2 inches long and $10.00/pair.

Item #3
These are matte dark red and silver on silver wire.  They are 1 3/4 inches long. 
I have one pair of these and they are also $10.00/pair.

Item #4
These are a little different design with the same matte dark red beads with "pearlish" accents.
They are strung on silver wire and are 1 1/2 inches long.
I have 3 pairs of these and they are $10.00/pair.

Item #5
Sold!!  Thank you Jean!!!
These next ones are made with cream and bronze colored beads on bronze wire.
They are 1 5/8 inches long.  They are $10.00/pair and I have one pair.

Item #6
Sold!!!!! Thank you Lori!!!
I love these!  I had to keep a pair of these for myself.
These are made with ceramic "blue-ish" beads with bronze and cream accents. 
These are strung on bronze wire and hang 1 3/4 inches.
These are $12.00/pair and I have 1 pair to sell.

Item #7
I really like these too. 
They are made with "bluish" ceramic beads with bronze accents on bronze wires.
They are 2 1/4 inches long.
I have one pair of these.

Item #8
These are made with "bluish" ceramic beads with clear accents on silver wire.
The one pair I have left kind of has a greener turquoise color to it.
They are 1 5/8 inches long and are $12.00/pair.
I have two pairs of these, one pair is more blue and the other is more "greenish".
If you prefer one or the other, let me know.
The blue pair is Sold!!  Thank you Jean!!

Item #9
And finally, are a blue bead with a charcoal accent bead on silver wires.
These hang 1 3/4 inches long.
They are $10.00/pair and I have 2 pairs.

Ok so here is how this will work.  If you are interested in buying any of these earrings and helping bring Abbey home, simply send me an email to specifying which item number you want and your mailing address.  The first email I receive will get to purchase.  I will then send you an email back telling you to send me payment through paypal.  There will be a $2.00 shipping charge added to each order.  You can use the paypal button at the right to submit payment.  When I receive payment I will ship the earrings to you.

Remember, I am not a professional and these are handmade earrings.
Therefore all sales are final.
