earrings!


I've made so many awesome earrings lately, and finally set up my 'earring studio' and took photos of them all... then tonight I completely revamped my earrings page -- please do look at it and tell me what you think! (I took and edited all of those photos tonight) And I'd love to know your favorites.

Now I'm going to show off my favorites...

i'm one of those freakish people who have the horrible allergy to all that is metal. if i wear a necklace all day, i get a rash. if i wear a ring a day, i get a little rash around my finger. if i wear earrings for a nanosecond, they swell up and ooze for days.

*sigh*

i had also meant to put that i think your earrings are BEAUTIFUL, and if i could feasibly wear them, i would SO be there.

you have wonderful talent!
belenen ══╣curious╠══
aww, thank you! (nothing makes me preen more than people loving my jewelry)

well, it's fantastically true :) now that my ears are healed, i plan on wearing the ones you sent me out a LOT.

i just wish that my hair would grow out of this horridly awkward phase, STAT. blech.

oh, that's awful! Have you tried titanium or surgical stainless steel? Or niobium?

--Niobium is a nickel-free inert metal. It is very resistant to corrosion and other reactions, and is used in medical implants. Niobium is not plated or painted. It is anodized, meaning it is colored by dipping it into an electrically charged "bath." Because it contains no nickel, most people with metal allergies can safely wear Niobium.

niobium is freaking FANTASTIC, thank you :) now, just to find other things that have them that will work so i can begin stocking up on my earring collection. thankfully, the repiercing studs worked really well, too, though they were a bitch to get back off of my ears, two months later.

Your earrings are beautiful, you're very talented and creative. I especially like: med. silverviolet, long double (purple aqua), long double (citrus), long grapes, christmastime and waterfall. The rest are still gorgeous, though. ;)
belenen ══╣vivacious╠══
ooooh, ooh, feedback! I love you! This makes me very happy. I always want to know which ones people like best.
belenen ══╣caffeinated╠══
and thank you for the compliments! I actually overlooked them in my excitement over you listing your favs. ;-)

lol, anytime. I love jewellery, and yours is unique. Keep up the good work ;)

I like "teardrop" and "long single (rednblack)" because they are red, and I like red. I like "med. Emerald" because its green and I like wearing green jewellery and I like "med. Silverviolet" because I love silver and because they look beautiful and I like "long double (darkrainbow)" because its a lovely design and I like "elegant link (antiqueshimmer)" because it's lovely too, and I would wear them if I had two holes in my ear, but i only have one and I fainted when I got them so not risking another. And "christmastime (violetpearl)" are ones I think one of my flat mates would like, they reminded me of her. She makes bead jewellery too. Favourite was definitely the "elegant link (antiqueshimmer)" but they are all wondeful, you're very talented
belenen ══╣teasing╠══
ooooooh, thank you for all the lovely feedback! And thank you for the compliment! "christmastime (violetpearl)" is my current favorite, actually -- I've been wearing it every day since I made it. To me it looks like christmas ornaments -- the glass ball kind.

I'm giggling at you about the fainting from getting your ears pierced. ;-)

I can't vote *g* I only wear hoops! Mine are the small dime and nickel-sized hoops that are pretty much "permanent" wear. I haven't taken the dime-sized gold hoops out of my second holes in probably 7-8 years. If I take them out and put in *any* other earrings, my ears get infected.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
that's awful -- I so love earrings, I'd go crazy if that was the case with me. I feel naked if I go out of the house without earrings in -- it's my one vanity. I don't need makeup, but I need earrings. ;-)

Your earrrings are really pretty. I think these ones are the best, long grapes
(purpleshine), christmastime (violetpearl), double chain (black), and waterfall
(blackspears) and linked dagger (crimson).
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
thank you! I like your taste. ;-)
