Earrings galore!

Had a sudden urge to make some earrings today and ended up making 6 pairs! (I never can do things by halves). Some are blue, some are fun, some are stylish, some are pretty - all were great fun to make. It's amazing how many combinations can be made with just a few different beads. Most can be worn for casual everyday wear, or can just as easily provide the perfect accessory for that special occasion - your choice! It just depends on your mood (and mine was to make some colourful, summery earrings).


This is a very pretty little pair of delicate powder blue earrings. I've used flat oval striped beads, topped off with bow-shaped slightly deeper powder blue beads.
Length: 2.5 cm (0.98 inches) from loop.
Colour: Powder Blue
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


A lovely pair of earrings for the summer! For these I've used a faceted semi-transparent bead, topped with an opaque, round bead and deeper blue cobalt bead, all on one pin so the beads fall close together.
Length: 2 cm (0.78 inches) from loop.
Colour: Cobalt Blue
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


Looking for something to go with that summer outfit? These lovely deep aqua earrings are just the thing! I've used tiny blue "tiger eye" glass beads topped with a large (approx. 1 cm/0.39 inch) semi-transparent deep aqua round bead with a subtle "foil" effect at the centre and a very pretty faceted blue/pale blue bead.
Length: 3.3 cm (1.29 inches) from loop.
Colour: Deep Aqua Blue
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


Summer is on it's way and what better way to dress up that pretty outfit than with these lovely earrings. I've used flat oval aqua blue beads, topped off with deep aqua blue faceted beads and tiny light aqua faceted beads. These earrings are long and delicate, reminding me of warm, tropical, lazy summer vacation days!
Length: 4.5 cm (1.77 inches) from loop.
Colour: Pale Aqua Blue and Deep Aqua Blue
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


These are really sweet little earrings and were such fun to make! I've used flat oblong beads with rounded ends in an orange/red blend and topped them off with pretty little bow-shaped topaz/amber beads. Beautiful summery colours to combine with a stylish or casual outfit!
Length: 3 cm (1.18 inches) from loop.
Colour: Orange/Red and Topaz/Amber
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


These lovely long earrings would go very well with a stylish dress, or a casual summer outfit. For this pair I've used 3 round glass beads in a delicate shade of lilac, topped off with irregular-shaped ivory-coloured/cream glass pearls.
Length: 4.9 cm (1.93 inches) from loop.
Colour: Lilac and Ivory/Cream
The hooks are silver-plated surgical steel.


These lovely earrings could be worn for dressing up for that special occasion or for casual wear. I picked out especially pretty "chunky" (1.5 cm/0.59 inch) irregular beads in amber/topaz and topped them off with delicate ridged and faceted purple beads with gold-coloured ends. Right at the top I've added tiny open-work gold-coloured, round metal beads.
Length: 3.7 cm (1.45 inches) from loop.
Colour: Amber/Topaz, Purple, Gold coloured
The hooks are gold-coloured surgical steel.
