Earrings Everyday ~ October Challenge

Fashion designs by Monique Lhuiller
served as this month's inspiration.
To learn more about
 this month's challenge click here.
For me I was drawn to the model in the middle.
How could I combine that edgeness with the lace.
I had purchase some Vintaj blanks 
the looked like shirts. I cut off the sleeves.
embossed them and alcohol inked them.
Then covered them with black lace.
Topped them off with a matt bordeaux  pearl.
and used a matt black lever backs.

OTTBS - September Challenge

The Subject matter was Whatever the Weather.
I had made this bracelet and sold it.
I had a few beads that were left over
that needed to be made
 into earrings
Perfect timing for the challenge.

Lima Beads Beads Rocks!

So many times we complain when we 
receive bad customer service and rightly so.
I want to share with you a company that gets it right!
Lima Beads.
I recently wrote them this complaint:

271043... My recent order..two of the 
Tangerine Recycled Glass Small 
Freeform Drop 6-12x11-15mm
 have cracks..from the hole to the edge of the bead.
 I know it is not a lot of money..but they are un-usable.
 What are the chances you could send replacements?
 I had planned to use them for earrings.
Thanks Terri Gauthier
