Arabian Nights, Belly Dancers, and Genie in a Bottle

What do Arabian Nights, Belly Dancers and Genies in a Bottle have in common?  They are all represented by the earrings I made this week.

I now know the pieces that I am sending into Stringing for consideration for their Spring 2013 issue and am finishing up the drafting and editing on the Instructions and Resources that they require to be submitted along with the jewelry.  I wish they required it only on the pieces they accept for publication because a lot of work goes into writing them - but that is the way the cookie crumbles. 

It is very draining to me to make jewelry to be submitted.  I don't know why - I really enjoy doing it, but it makes me tired.  At some point along the way, I need to make things just for fun or just because they need making.  That is how these earrings were born. 

I have been making a lot of gypsy and yoga inspired jewelry lately, along with a lot of tribal things.  To me the styles aren't really all that different.  Anyway, enough talk - more pictures!

 These are 3" long but even at that length, they are not terribly heavy.
These are 2-1/2" long.  Again, not terribly heavy.

I also am thrilled that I had my best month yet on etsy.  It was fabulous!  And, to celebrate, I am going to have a giveaway later in the week.  Haven't decided what yet so check back.
