Sparkle and Doom agate and key earrings

Sparkle and Doom Agate and key earrings

I really like these agate hearts (or jasper I suppose – I can’t remember what stone they are!).  The soft limey green and speckles of brown.  I paired them some tiny goldtone keys, making them quite romantic.  A few links of chain finish of the look.  I used all goldtone findings: headpins, shepherd hooks, jumprings.

Sparkle and Doom labrodorite and star

I think I’ve mentioned a time or three that labradorite is one of my favorite stones. 😉

I paired them with some silver metal stars I had hanging around.  This pair reminds me of a moon and stars set.

I used a single link of bar chain for each earring.  Never throw away your broken chain! You can always use even a single link to make a really nice piece of jewelry.

Wire, jumprings, and shephooks are the findings used.

Well I’ve finally caught up to myself, and will start posting just one pair a day!  I’ll be pretty much done the stones I set aside this time next week.  I’m considering which bead bin to jump into next. Pearls? Wood? Shells? A particular colour? Mixed bins?  Perhaps I’ll make a poll of it and leave it up to you guys. 🙂
