A case in point is the blue heart earrings I have planned. I made the necklace and the bracelet but need smaller hearts for the earrings. I couldn't find them so I went online - how hard could it be?
From the description and picture I thought I had matched up my glass hearts, alas not so! I said I would show case them here but I can only show you the bracelet and another necklace I made. I know I shouldn't make the same mistake twice but I have ordered more blue glass hearts online in the hope that they will match - ever the optimist!
The bracelet to match the necklace seen in a previous blog post. Finished with a sterling silver toggle clasp and sterling findings, it consists of 4 strands of silver lined glass seed beads and royal blue glass faceted beads with a chunky 20mm glass heart focal bead.
A simple but pretty 3 strand clear glass chip necklace interspersed with silver beads and finished with a silver plated toggle clasp.
A less 'arty' shot so you can see the whole necklace.
Thanks for visiting today I wish you a lovely week and as always comments most welcome!
