I have completed a couple of these piles of ideas and am posting my first one, as promised. These long dangle earrings are crafted from lead-safe copper wire and a mix of Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystals. Not too fussy, not too ornate...simple, swingy and super fun. Unfortunately these looked so good when I tried them on I decided to keep the first pair for myself and had to make another pair for my etsy shop.

Photo below...Just a part of my head to show my earring being worn...I should have worn a lighter top...no I should have gotten someone else to model them for me !

Since it looks like Etsy is going to take its sweet time to instigate a protocol that will allow us to have multiple shops under one email address or to be able to change our shop/user names, I will seriously have to start thinking about getting a second email address and opening another shop for my jewelry. Not that my jewelry is flying off the shelves (oh how lovely that would be) I just don't like mixing my supplies with my finished pieces.
Aly of AlyGatr'sEverywhere I think you need to open an etsy banner shop as it looks like I may be needing another banner some time soon. : )
