I've Lost My Heart...

 To linen and leather and cotton too...

Particularly where earrings are concerned when some sort of cording seems to be the first thing I reach for - a bit of a turnaround from the old fibre-phobic me.

These two pairs were made in the wee small hours of this morning when I should have been sound asleep!

 Gorgeous organic lampwork beads by Outwest, Czech glass, cotton cord and handmade bronze earwires

 Lampwork beads by Lush Lampork, linen cord, sterling silver accents and handmade earwires.

Then we have a couple pairs I made for Pay It Forward Gifts which have now been received by their winners Sandi Volpe and Linda Younkman.

 Fine silver (PMC) charms by me, lampwork beads by Molten Mayhem, leather cord and handmade sterling silver earwires.

 Ceramic charms by White Clover Kiln, lampwork discs by Nomad Glass wrapped in bronze, Czech seed beads, linen cord and Niobium earwires

 And finally a couple of pairs made last month and I think these were probably where the love affair began.

  Ceramic charms by Suburban Girl, lampwork beads by Suebeads, linen cord, sterling silver accents and handmade earwires.

Handmade bronze rings by me, lampwork beads by Puffafish and Pebble Dreams, cotton cord and Niobium earwires.

I don't know how long this affair will last...things are going well right now but who's to say what's around the corner to tempt a girl to try something different!

So what's caught your eye lately in this beady world of myriad temptations?

Have a great weekend all.



  1. I like how you're using the fibers to complement the colors in the beads!

  2. Color saturated and very wearable!

  3. You are so good at earrings. I love the color and movement in all of them.

  4. I love the combination of textures. Thanks for sharing - although sorry you couldn't sleep!

  5. Hi Lesley,
    If you are going to lose your heart, you could not have lost it to a more beautiful art. All of the pairs of earrings are gorgeous. I love the bright colored cotton cord you have been using.

  6. What a great assortment of earrings. Love the 1st pair and the use of the fibers.

  7. Glass, metal and fibre... what a sublime mènage-à-trois LOL. Honestly, Lesley, it is worth losing your heart in this case. These are all amazing, but I just adore Julie's rustic drops (Outwest); I am presently having a relationship with mine, but sadly, I will soon have to send them on their way, to light up someone else's life! Stay strong!

  8. Oh Lesley! These are all just gorgeous! So excited to see you getting over your phobia ;) You know me, I live for fiber! :D

  9. I love what you're doing with Fiber, I need to follow your lead and get over myself and start using fiber more often!!

  10. ALL of these are wonderful! I especially love the green ones.

  11. I like! Love the green and those brown ones with the turquoise.

  12. Totally gorgeous all of them :-)

  13. You are so multi-talented! These are all gorgeous...and so creative! Love them!

  14. Oh wow - I love these earrings. The first pair is my favourite. I am so inspired to try "knotting" as well. It looks beautiful!
