New Earrings......

These are some of the new earrings that Whit and I have been working on. Whit is the solder master! 

I have started capping my kryptonite beads with small caps and am now thinking that they look naked without the little caps! 

We will have all sizes of caps available for sale in Tucson! Let me know if you are interested in any specific sizes.



Also leave a comment and I will draw a name for a capped kryptonite bead! I will draw the name on January 31st!

Andrea these earrings are awesome! Janet will attest to my weakness for bead earrings, but still, I LOVE these!

Now could you please list some on etsy? ;)

Very nice earrings :)
I really like those Kryptonite beads of yours, cabbed or not. It is amazing how the etching makes the core colours glow. You have heard this before of course, but I am new, so I can say it again :)

Beautiful earrings Andrea, expecially the green ones. Those Kryptonite beads look "other-worldly".

Rosie wants a red one for a nose ring.

Her concern is the weight. Will the capped bead be too heavy for her nose? Is there a lighter weight metal that Whit can use on hers?

From Rose.. with the nose.. and the toes!! xo T

I like the new style very much. Very modernistic! I am also a big, big fan of the kyrponite beads as you know and I love them either way. If they don't have the silver on them they are easier to put on head pins, with the silver they need something wider and more noticeable. Both have numerous possibilities for stringing or earrings. Glad you asked, are you still making them with the smaller holes and plain?

Hi, your beads are great, and I love, how you finish them to jewelry - hard to explain, what I mean - I like your jewelry style? The earrings are very interesting - are the beads changeable?

I think your kryptonite beads are wonderful, Andrea, and the caps are the perfect compliment to them.

Gorgeous earrings, Andrea! I always love the way your glass looks with your caps. It's a combo of intention and organic that really speaks to me.

I just found your blog by accident through Kelley's Beads blog. I have seen your work on Etsy and adore it.
I'm glad I can now follow your blog.
Happy Thursday!

Thank you everyone for your nice words.....

Noel I am still making the regular sizes of kryptonite beads..... (hole sizes). Just drop me an email sometime if you are needing some! I will get my etsy store going full again after Tucson... seems like I just haven't had much time for photographing the beads!!!!!

Thanks again!
Andrea

Hi Andrea,
I missed your class at Arrow Springs in December... seems I was the only one signed up for the Thurs-Friday session. Bummer! I'm a real fan of your work!
Good luck in Tucson.
