The most beautiful earrings in the world

I was a very happy girl last night. When I got home I noticed that there was some post for me. Now ignoring the £500 in energy bills the post was great. Firstly my comic arrived (Elle) and then my newest addition to the bead family my Marine Lizard beads made by bead artist Laura . My housework plans thus thwarted I sat with my pliers and made some earrings. I tried numerous combinations of beads, none doing the beautiful beads justice until I stumbled across the perfect combination. Now I've taken a couple of pictures and they really don't show them off properly. May I introduce Marina...



I was going to put them on Etsy but until I have some better photographs they're not going anywhere.


Laura's work is truly inspirational, these beads are so intricate and beautiful and that makes it almost too easy to make something gorgeous. The combination of the antique gold and olive Swarovski Crystals with the beads is amazing. I was so lucky to finally get to buy her beads. They sell so fast!


I must say I have Jelveh to thank as she convinced Laura to sell her lonelies. Jelvah is another amazing Lamp work artist you should take a look at. So thanks Jelveh.


One day I'll try Lamp work, put me down for a course next year Laura!

Love love love what you've done with the beads, April! You've made the colours pop.

Thank you for the wonderful compliments and yes, Jelveh definitely gave me the kick up the backside I needed. :o)

Hi, april - those are gorgeous earrings! I love your comment, "Housework thus thwarted..." ooh, I've had that happen many a time. I'm glad Jelveh arm-wrestled Laura (and won) to part with those gorgeous lonelies!
