I found a poll on the Internet about everyone's favorite type of earring wires. I was very interested in knowing what types people liked, as I love to focus on making primarily earrings in my Etsy shop. My guess all along was kidney wires or leverbacks. But personally, I love how the simple french earring wires look....and you know what? So does the majority of people. More than 50% stated that their favorite types of earwires were the french wires. I was surprised that so many people liked something so simple, when here I was thinking that I needed to add a lot of pizazz to my earrings by using large, bold earwires, such as the kidneys. So I have begun making a couple of pairs of earrings that have simple copper french wires.
I have chosen beads that are bright and sparkly, so they will be the focus of the earring. But at the same time, they will add a subtle, playful touch to an outfit, which is just right.
I am a beadaholic from rural PA, though I am a NJ native of about 19 years. When I am not at my day job at a local retaurant, or on the computer, I am at my desk creating jewelry. After a (very) long road of trying to a niche in the world of jewelry, I think I have started to find something I love~ earrings! I especially love floral inspired designs, involving glass flowers, or freshwater pearls and metal bead caps.
Up there in my interests are reading historical fantasy novels, cooking, and listening to my Ipod.
A couple of years ago I happened to stumple across a curious website that you one can sell handmade items. Excited, I signed up, and then began my journey (again, long!) to trying to create a jewelry business. My website is www.cymbaline84.etsy.com. There you will find an array of earrings that are both simple and whimsical in nature.
