Auntie’s Beads

Last year in November I received an email from Auntie’s Beads inviting me to spend a $25 gift certificate. I kind of forgot about it. Then Christmas came around and I made several pairs of earvines for gifts, plus some to put in Mike’s Mom’s store, and a pair for FabGrandma’s auction for the Oral Cancer Foundation. Then I went to make myself a pair only to discover I didn’t have enough of the 2mm sterling silver beads I like to use as spacers on the earvines.

01 Order from Auntie's Beads (1024x768)

So last week I spent the gift certificate at Auntie’s Beads. Prices are competitive, service was prompt, and I got a free gift of two 18mm faceted beads.

02 Earvines for Karen's auction (1024x768)

Now I have no excuse, I need to get busy making that pair of earvines.

And while I’m at it, shamelessly promote myself. Earvines sell for $25 including shipping in the US. I use sterling silver wire and have a wide variety of glass and gemstone beads.

Gaelyn I think these are so pretty but guess who is allergic to silver :-( well as earrings anyway. I make my own jewellery but have never tried these vines they are very different. Diane

Something to keep you busy in the off season when you are not at the Canyon and the weather chases you into your home.

I don't wear ear rings, but I have a mole on my left ear lobe. It is not for sale.

Gaelyn, I have never seen "ear vines." How do they stay in place?

The earvines are very pretty, Gaelyn. I love the turquoise and silver and the delicate design.

Those are really lovely! Sorry I haven't been keeping up with your blog but thanks for checking on mine and commenting, though. I'm sure ready for winter to be over.

Beautiful work, Gaelyn! The silver and turquoise are perfect for SW jewelry.

I was lucky to be the winning bidder of the turquiose earvines on FabGrandmas website for the Oral Cancer Foundation auction. They are so easy to put on, and the instructions for how to put them on is on the back of her card that the earvines are mounted on. I was so worried that they would fall out of place the first time I wore them. I had given them a gentle squeeze to hold them in place at the top of the ear area as the instructions said to. I nervously checked them constantly throught the day, and I have to honestly say that they never moved. These are so feminine, and they would be great gifts for teens or anyone who loves turquoise and silver. (I'll be 60 in April and I love them!)
Thank you Gaelyn for the earvines, your work is beautiful and I'm so happy to have them!
