One thing leads to another

I've finally expanded my Reef line to include post earrings.

They are pretty artsy and abstract as each pair goes together but is a mirror image. The earrings are in fact the exact same beads used to make the necklace but with the earrings you see them from the "face" of the bead rather than the side. The sides of the disks are sanded to create some contrast, rather like a bezel, and the posts are sterling silver.

I debated these earrings for quite a while and worked (without success) on designs that were exactly like the necklace and bracelets because the strength of the design is in the fact that it all colors.  But in the end I really think the earrings work and I've paired them by dominate color. (e.g. earrings that are mostly red, earrings that are mostly green)

Let me know what you think. They'll be in the Etsy shop by end of day. Maybe some dangle versions will happen next.

Have a great weekend! I'm off to the Quench opening in Belfast Maine…more on that as internet connection at our Down East accommodation allows.
