Clinical for the term finished up on Wednesday this week, and we went out for lunch as a group as per tradition. It’s always bittersweet to end clinical for the term, at least for me, because you end up becoming good friends with those that you work with and you know there’s a chance that you won’t be in the same group as them next term. And because I adore all things Christmas, I decided to give my clinical group members gifts this year!

“Springtime Flair” Earrings

I didn’t have much time during the school term to work on many projects (but I did take photos of everything, so I will show you everything as time goes by). Here are two pairs of earrings that I made when spring was just beginning back in March. I just wanted to make something light and fun to wear that wasn’t going to take too long to make (and these are quick projects!) and would add a little colour to whatever it is that I wear.

The first pair uses a mix of seed and bugle beads with flower charms and chemically antiqued earring hooks. They are approximately 2.5 cm (~1″) in diameter.

This second pair uses beads that I’ve shown on the site before, even with the same star charms. I paired them up with very simple stainless steel earring hooks and headpins.

“Stars in your eyes” Earrings

This is a somewhat delayed post for the pair of earrings that I designed and gifted to a friend for her 20th birthday! It went along with the Crochet Ribbed Cowl and was packaged in one of the new butterfly boxes I got for jewellery packaging (super darling boxes, they’re marketed for wedding favours, but because they came in an assortment of colours and don’t have a specific design, I use them for jewellery packaging).

I used a mix of green beads and star charms to go along with the ‘antiqued’ earring hooks (stainless steel that has been chemically treated, they go well with the star charms). They measure about an inch in diameter, if memory serves.
