Etsy Bloggers Blog Carnival

The May 12 edition of the Etsy Bloggers Street Team blog carnival sports the theme “Spring Bloom”. Now, I know I mainly talk about handmade books, journal related topics, and a bit of family here, but I thought I'd share some of my other handmade endeavors too. This week I made these copper and Czech glass earrings in honor of spring. I found that I was purchasing lots of fun earrings from many wonderful Etsy sellers, wanted to spend less money, and decided that I could make my own. I don't wear much jewelry except my wedding ring, a fun anklet I bought from Dornick Designs on Etsy, and my collection of fun earrings. My daughter things that these earrings look more like lamps than a "Spring Bloom", but I'm happy with them! And the other earrings below are some that I've made since purchasing supplies. I need a lot of work on my wire wrapping skills, and have no intention of adding earrings to my Etsy shop, but I'm loving wearing these fun, new earrings and so will the girlfriends that I make them for.
