In my years of travel and searching the internet, I am constantly on the look out for truly unusual and unique beads - always glass, of course, never plastic, although sometimes I run across a really amazing molded acrylic (lightweight!) bead or a fimo, polymer clay bead that catches my attention. This page is devoted to
beaded earrings made from those beads. I have also used this page for my pearl earrings. Of course, still, many of my designs feature, or are accented by, Swarovski� crystal, or art glass or gemstones. These vary in size and accentuation, but, as always, if something strikes your fancy, I just may have more to design a custom piece just for you! Be sure and email me with any ideas! Thank you for taking the time to look at my pages!
Note: I am now offering a choice of lengths with earrings - the actual beads
used (thus the look of the earrings) will vary from the picture depending on the size you choose. The
measurement is from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the earring.
Please note: FREE SHIPPING FOR ANY TOTAL ORDER OVER $50.00! All other orders from my website will be a flat $1.85 for 1st class shipping.
These beads really caught my eye so I bought up a bunch of them! It's very hard to find really pretty purple beads and these are a soft mottled
lavendar purple. I've kept them simple by using 2 beads and just accenting with the rounds and spacers.
You may have guessed that I LOVE foil earrings! These gorgeous fushia with silver foil beads are cut in a fluted, twist shape so they look all swirly when you wear them! I've kept them simple with just silver accents.

What gorgeous beads!! I don't usually dabble in acrylics but these large hearts are such a glorious color and the

These beauties are vintage pink swirl russian cut beads and are absolutely breathtaking. I have a very good customer who wears only dainty earrings so she has got me thinking of making more petite earrings for those of you who prefer those. The pink is much more pastel than this picture shows and it's impossible to capture the delicate beauty of the beads.
Baby blue mottled glass squashed rounds make these earrings truly special! I've accented them with a simple Bali silver bead in the middle.

I have a friend who is a wolf person and I found these awesome wolf charms to make her a pair of earrings. I've accented them with gorgeous malachite and beautiful faceted rainbow
flourite both gemstones with amazing metaphysical properties. Malachite known for helping to release negative emotions and protect from psychic attack.. Overall, malachite is said to bring harmony into one's life. Wearing it can
assist in the manifestation of the heart's desire and strengthen intuition. Flourite enhances spiritual energy work, focuses the will and balances the psyche.
I found these awesome beads on a recent trip out West and immediately fell in love with them! They remind me of the mountains so I call them "Mountain Scape".
They are a large teardrop and I've kept them simple by just adding a sterling silver demure bead cap. I honestly don't remember if they are shell or bone but they are
very lightweight despite their size and will not weigh down your ears. I can just see them with all kinds of clothing - suede, corduroy, suits - mostly the browns
and rustic colors that are reflected in these beads.
