The waiting game...

I found an amazing website the other day, and now I'm awaiting the arrival of all the beautiful goodies I ordered.

This website has incredibly unique beads, Swarovski crystals of styles I've never seen in stores, and amazing prices.  The more you buy, the less it costs. With a flat FedEX shipping of $5, this website is fantastic. Now, as I  obsessively check the tracking code over and over again, I sit and watch the door until the FedEX deliveryman arrives! I can't wait to post pics of my haul! More to come, hopefully soon!!

Creative outlet

I love being able to create something out of various parts. Take these earrings:

Czech crystal and metal beads

These lovely baubbles are so fun, they make a statement without being overly bold. I'm learning along the way, what works and what doesn't.

Fun, new goodies!

 Murano-like glass teardrop beads on silver chain

 Gold Filigree leafs with Swarovski crystal chains

Me! Wearing my fun, Czech glass bead cluster dangles!

What's your earring style?

Diamond studs, hoops, gold, silver, dangles? What's your favorite kind of earring? I wear 'em all. There are days where I need a funky pair of earrings, like ones made with wood looking like a tooth. Other days, I need simplicity of a diamond stud (or CZ in my case!)

I'll be posting photos of my earrings, tell me which ones you love?
Cheers and as a dear friend of mine always says "Have a Magnificent, magical Monday"!

Welcome to Jewels by EB

Waking up in the morning, I grab my "mommy gear", my diaper bag, and then put on my earrings. I love earrings, it's the one item I can go funky, classy, sassy and it makes me feel great about myself. About a year ago, my amazing sister taught me how to make earrings. Ever since then, I've been making them for myself, friends and family. I discovered I truly love the intricacy and tiny details that goes with making jewelry.

This blog is a journey through the wins (and sometimes losses) of earring making! It might seem trivial, but in a world of diapers, laundry, messy house, cleaning and laundry and all things domestic, my tiny sparkley earrings make me happy. I'm here to share my joy of making jewelry!
