Pink Dangle Earrings

I've been rooting around in my stash of vintage beads. Its tough when you want to make something--- anything--- and your at a loss as to what to make.... Earrings are something fast to whip up to ease that angst of wanting to create.... I made a bunch of pink lovelies... These were all made from up-cycled jewelry pieces. I did use new ear wires and wire pins to build these earrings upon. This pair is super sweet... All of these earrings are for sale for $5 each.... coming soon to my etsy boutique.This set of earrings has the same shape as the pink beads above only smaller. They came off of the same vintage necklace I pulled apart.I wish I could come across some enameled beads that had more pink in them....Just a smidge of pink....These have a pink/peachy look to them. I used green vintage beads to pull out the green in the enameled beads...Seeing how September is right around the corner, that got me to thinking about blue stones... No where near being blue sapphire... but lovely just the same. I found two sets of old-old playing cards that I picked up at a tag sale for .50¢ They are from Germany, look at the beautiful graphics... I used a grommet punch to make small holes in the cards, then just slipped the ear wires through the cards. Makes for easy displaying... I think these would be fabulous with a blue-jean jacket with silver buttons....
I've linked up to How Sweet the Sounds " Pink Saturday" linky party.

I am so glad I came by, your earrings are wonderful. I used to make earrings, but have not done any in years. I used some of my moms jewelry and those were the earrings I loved the most.
I am here because it is my first time participating in "Pink Saturday"
If you get a chance.. come on by and visit my "pink" entry.

They are so pretty! Wow! What an amazing collection you've create! This reminded me of my husband's deployment in 2006, when the Army installation would have a monthly craft night for spouses of deployed Soldiers. The very first one I attended was a jewelry craft night and I made the pretties pair of pink earrings, but sadly one of the beads broke. I don't wear them now, but I still have them for the memory.
Hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
