Tube Riveted Lake Erie Beach Stone Artisan Earrings



I love big bold dangly earrings, but I prefer wearing posts to ear wires. These new beach stone beauties fit the bill!
Photos do not do them justice.
Hot off the bench and one of a kind!
Get em while they're hot. Just sayin.
Find them in the SToNZ store.

Lake Erie Beach Stone Earrings Display Stands

I drill natural beach stones all the time, but instead of jewelry, I decided to make earring display stands using wonderful smooth larger beach rocks I found on my favorite Lake Erie beach. Stainless steel earring hangers are securely glued into holes in the rocks. Little notches in the top bar keep earrings in place and evenly spaced.
Use these great stands to photograph your earring creations, or display them at a craft show or gallery. 
No two are like. I am making them as fast as I can! They are proving to be quite popular.
Check out what I have left here.

vintage silver chains

I collect them. I take them apart and make them into new things.
Three great vintage sterling chains, connected with handmade chunky soldered jump rings. Swivel clasp. SO much silver. Yum.
Lucky you, if you have an 8" wrist!

Multichain Seaglass Bracelets

You already know how much I love working with natural beach stones and beach glass, but I think it's also obvious when looking at my work, that I adore sterling chains.
This is a new bracelet design for me, which I think I might explore further.
So many chains.
So yummy.
What do you think?
