"Avocado with Lime". Here's the first of Heather's disks that I paired together in a beautiful Gray color and lime green. The green gives the gray a "greenish hue" and it's just so pretty. In this pair I used Light Olivine and Black Diamond Swarovski Crystals, silver spacers and beautiful heart shaped sterling silver leaf charms at the bottom. They hang from another one of my cool earring finds, sterling silver ear wires with White Topaz stones in them. Very very pretty!
"Vineyard". More of Heather's Disks, this time in two shades of purple. Accented by SFD glass petite organic glass beads in Moss and Purple, Antique silver Meadow beads, Olivine and Amethyst Swarovski Crystals and silver grape charms dangling below! So cool! I love these!
Here's the one beachy set, but I thought they were really pretty. "Sea Mist" is made with two colors of Heather's glass disks in blue and yellow. They are accented by these awesome colored seed beads that I picked up in my local bead store, some silver spacers and Capri Blue Swarovski Crystals. I put these on some Saki Silver earwires... I am going to need to get some more of those... they are fun, and I think I can do a lot with them!
"Woodsy" made with Silver beads, Pine cone charms, Fire Opal Swarovski Crystals, and a couple of disks that I can't remember who made them, but I had them for a while in one of my boxes and I thought the colors were really nice for the fall.
"Autumn's Splendor" More of Heathers Disks in an Amber and Olive mix. I paired these two together, and it's one of my favorite fall combo's! I used Bali Spacers, Swarovski Crystals in Olivine and Copper and dangled some really pretty and very detailed Sterling silver leaf charms below. These hang from another of the new earwires that I found, this time with small Peridot stones in them.
And last, but certainly not least "Willow" made with the Chocolate brown Disks, Bali Spacers, Smoked Topaz and Light Colorado Topaz Swarovski Crystals, and Sterling Silver leaf charms. These hang from beautiful Willow Sterling Silver earwires and I'm telling you, I'm now HOOKED on these earwires!
And there you have it, the results of my mad earring beading session last night! I love earrings, I love making them. They are all so different and pretty, I just don't think I could pick my favorite at this point. I'll get these up on Etsy tonight, and then perhaps you can pick your favorite!

Anyway, here's the rundown:
"Stary Night" Made with gorgeous Boro beads from Deb Rosely accented by Indigo, Light Colorado Topaz and Ceylon Topaz Swarovski Crystals.
"Sweet as Honey" made with awesome lampwork beads by Jelveh that I grabbed on Etsy. Accented with Hill Tribe tubes, Topaz and Olivine Swarovski crystals and Celtic charms near the Bali Toggle Clasp.
"Floral Fringe" made with beads from two artists, Carey (flowers) and Jena (hollows). Awesome color scheme! I love how these match together! I used Swarovski Crystals in Pacific Blue Opal, Erinite, Aqua, and Indicolite!
"Sea Treasure" made with a beautiful focal bead by Shari Slonski. I love her beads as well. Such a unique style! Accented with a Bali large holed bead as the bail, Chrysolite and Indigo Swarovski Crystals and two of her metallic beads dangling below! I'll update this post when I figure out where I am listing these pieces, but you can look for them on Etsy or 1000 Markets tonight!
