Just Notes: Earring ruminations

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, February 27, 2008 2:21 AM (Eastern)

I've gotten more into making earrings, lately. I don't mean that in any mass-production sense. It's just I've realized how few pairs of "go-to" earrings I've owned in my lifetime. I do have some, but only the few.

I suppose it's analogous to a search for a signature perfume, or set of 'fumes...once you have more choices, it becomes more complicated. More customized, but you have to think more, plan more, put together the pieces of the puzzle.

So far, I've concluded the fashionable long, narrow earring does not work for me. I like them, but the ones I've made, I don't wear. I knocked a design off from the Sundance catalog...a nice design, three small pearls and a flat faceted jade it is, along with two other pieces which no longer exist:

jade jewelry

It came out looking fine but ended up languishing first in my earring drawer, then in my to-dismantle pile.

Something with a hoop involved tends to fare better, which is why I've been fiddling a lot with hoops lately.

I'd like to try more "cascade" earrings, like these from Ava Luxe:

In fact I have some in process that just aren't working. I'm waiting on some leverbacks to try them out with.

I've been thinking of color combos that might go well with gold and a pearl: milky multicolored sapphires, pink tourmalines with a smoky blue, and maybe a pink-orange sapphire.
