Tuesday

I want a blog with big pictures.

Little bird fun.







I love these little beads. 







They're my favorite. I was first introduced to them two summers ago while strolling around Korea. Too adorable! I think I bought every single pair of earrings I saw that had these little cuties dangling off of them. They were pretty rare to see back then. But they were so addicting, all milky smooth and delicate. It almost didn't matter if I didn't like the earring design. Almost (:


Fast forward two years, and I still love them. Two years later, I'm crafting with them.


Here are three pairs of earrings. 


I made a little challenge for myself to use the following items: pink bead balls, pearl white birds, blue glass beads
to create three different pairs of earrings.


1.
insert odd color shift... I'm sorry the colors are so funky for this post. I don't have any way of batch editing these (I don't have photoshop on my laptop).


2.


3.
the shortest and most simple pair




My best friend and I discovered this amazing bead shop about fifteen minutes away. I usually buy my beads online, but I think it's great to support your local bead stores. I've gone twice already!

Here are some new beads I purchased. Can you tell what my new favorite colors are to play with?:


What do you guys think of the new layout?

Thursday

a quick tip


I'm a cheater. 

I scour Forever 21 for their chain necklaces, than proceed to take them apart after purchasing them. They're usually pretty cheap and there is a good variety. I don't really buy jewelry anymore, only studs, but I always keep an eye out for chains.

This was one necklace.

I was going through some old pictures when I found photographs of when I first started making earrings. Wow, just wow. Kind of embarrassing haha.

My first couple of pairs: overexposed pictures from my point and shoot.










Made out of clay. These pictures are way too overexposed... you can barely see the wing. I remember it took me probably an hour to construct that damn thing. Clay is not my forte. The rays on the sun are swarovski crystals, haha.


these are actually the first pair i've ever sold. $5 to a good internet friend, lol.




Then to the slightly newer stuff, but still a couple years back. They really aren't too bad, they just suffer from horrible photography:










HAHA man.
