It's a Long Story

Well not really, just trying to think of a clever way to use the word Long to represent these 2 new pair of earrings. At 2.5" each they are definitely long!

The first pair is just listed on Etsy. I found these great unusual Etched Glass Tubes in Friday Harbor this weekend at Vital Elements. They didn't have many and I bought 2 sets. They are so cool, rough and rustic just how I like it! I think the little sun charms look cute dangling off the bottom.

These next earrings were a special order. I made the SnakeSkin components to sell but somebody asked me to create a pair of long earrings for them. I had something in mind already and planned on making more SnakeSkin for myself so I was very happy to oblige this request. I do have an even longer pair of SnakeSkin components available on Etsy.

Here is what I created, I dangled beautiful Seafoam Recycled Glass discs off the end and wrapped lots of copper wire all the way up the SnakeSkin.





I love these and will definitely have to play with SnakeSkin again!

  3. I love those beads you got in Friday Harbor, Kristi. What are they made of? Is it an etched stone?
