Earring Challenge Day 5

Today's Challenge Earrings are Valentine's Day Inspired. I know that Christmas was not even 2 weeks ago but Valentine's Day is in a few short weeks and as a beading retailer we have to be ready and have things made in advance for holidays. These hearts are some of my favorites. The pink hearts are rubber and the silver hearts are pewter. Today's earrings were simple but things got crazy at the shop yesterday and I didn't have much time to devote to coming up with a fabulous pair.

What I was busy with yesterday was teaching 2 ladies how to do St. Petersburg Stitch. It has been years since I sat down and did the stitch and I forgot how fun it is. I think I am going to do a video on it in a few weeks to post on our youtube page because there are so many possibilities with this stitch. This is a picture of the finished bracelet from yesterday and while it's pretty I wasn't satisfied with it because the crystals wouldn't sit perfectly. Next time I do this bracelet I think I'm gonna use bigger beads.

In March I will have been in business for 8 years. In 8 years I have never kept track of all the jewelry that I make. This year one of my resolutions is to take a picture of every single piece of jewelry that I make so that at the end of the year I can go back and count to see what all I made in a year. Just got to remember to carry with my camera with me all the time. :)

Simple but effective earrings. I like the combination of finishes.
Cute bracelet too!
