This is the last post starring ~these~awkward heavy earrings:

I chopped it into three, and have already created two new pairs with the top and middle segments.

This last pair has really been giving me inspiration block, I just couldn’t find the right thing(s) to pair it with.  I’ve been to every bead store in a 50 mile radius, trying to find juuuust the right bead or finding.  This segment has only a top connector, so this means that it ~has~ to be at the bottom. I finally found the perfect thing after pouring over every bead in the store at Chicago Beads: a lovely carved jade(?) rose.

I really love how the texture of the green bead looks contrasted with the silver flower.

I’ve switched up the earring finding on this pair: #1 was a post, #2 was a leverback, and for #3 I decided to go with a hook. 

So~ Not too shabby, three new very different and completely unique earrings instead of one clunky heavy awkward thing I never wore.  Go DIY!  ~ Here’s the complete set, for comparison~
