Fabulous Earrings at
ArtMadeByTammy's Shop!

Luminous Earrings on Sterling SilverThis week I'm featuring earrings in ArtMadeByTammy, a really cool Etsy shop! Tammy is an artisan who makes fabulous jewelry, and her earrings are really special. I love the variety she offers, and could write pages about them, but ... I guess I'll have to choose ... so I'll start with the lovlies on the left, the Luminous Earrings on Sterling Silver. These dangles are made with 8mm round Czech glass crackle beads and sterling silver ear wires. If you know about Czech glass beads, you know these are fantastic, sparkly beads that will catch the light and glitter every time you move. Tammy put them on silver wire and made a tightly wrapped loop at the top, so they're very well made, then hung them onto very modern French style ear wires. They'll dangle about 1 1/4" from your ears; and the best part is they're on SALE! You can give them a new home for only $12.00.

Its springtime, and there's no better time for flowers! These pretty blue glass blooms are gorgeous, and they go so well with jeans. The Marvelous Marbleized Blue Rose Lampwork Sculpted Earrings would be a great addition to your collection! The flower beads are handmade and they're pretty big - 14mm wide x 10mm tall. Tammy combined them with Swarovski crystal beads and sterling silver parts to make these pretty dangles. The ear wires are extra long - they are 34mm long and 13mm wide - and they'll hang about 2 1/4" from the ear. These fabulous earrings are $28.00!
The spectacular earrings on the left are made with Fire Cherry Quartz. This is actually a kind of art glass; the multifaceted beads sparkle in just about any kind of light. The pink colored Swarovski crystal bicone beads add a nice, sparkling touch. The faceted fire cherry quartz beads are 12mm x 8mm; with the sterling silver ball and post stud ear wires they dangle approximately 1" from the ear. This fashionable pair of dangle earrings will match with many colors, so they're very versatile. I know it soulds hard to believe, but you could call these Fire Cherry Quartz and Swarovski Crystal on Sterling Silver Post Earrings your own for just $18.00!
This next pair is really different! They're Tammy's gorgeous
Clear Teardrop Prism Earrings. One look and you can see why she named them that way -they really do act like a prism, breaking light up into a rainbow of colors. These amazing art glass earrings are beautiful and you know they'll be noticed by everyone around you! These are large glass dangles; they are 30mm long x 20mm wide without the ear wires. This designer chose fancy 39mm long platinum plated ear wires that are nickel - free, so there won't be any allergy worries while you're wearing them. They're almost 2 1/2" long and they could be dangling from YOUR ears for the amazingly low price of just $25.00!
Next are ... the Waves Blown Glass Earrings! This pair is nice and light ... because the beads are hollow! These are hand blown, with a vivid cobalt blue color. They have a fantastic wave pattern - with white swirls going around the beads! The beads themselves are quite large at 20mm, and Tammy added bead caps with small round beads at the bottom to dress them up. They're securely wrapped at the top with a nice hand formed loop. These pretty blue glass beads are suspended from large 40mm oval ear wires, and they will hang about 2 3/4" from your ear. These are simply beautiful! They could easily become one of your favorite pair, because earrings like these are suitable for casual wear with jeans - and they'll look just as good with a business suit or a nice dress. They aren't just beautiful - they are a great buy at only $12.00!

OK ... I've got one more pair that I have to include today! This is a very different, one of a kind pair you definitely won't find anywhere else! Tammy's Precious Metal Art White Tulip Flower Earrings are an altered - art pair of earrings, and you'll get lots of compliments and comments about them! Tammy hand painted the silver petals with white enamel, and added three dangles with crystal bicone beads to each flower. Matching crystals are at the top; in between are hand oxidized silver petal bead caps. They've been coated in clear epoxy resin for a durable, shiny finish, and they hang from sterling silver ear wires. These will hang about 2 1/4" from the ear, and they're just spectacular! A true artisan made pair of earrings, they should cost a lot more than the $30.00 price!
That's it for today. Please check out Tammy's shop for more artisan made jewelry; she has a full line of wonderful necklaces and pendants, hair accessories, beaded bookmarks and much more!
