Two hands of earrings

I managed to complete 10 pairs of earrings from the stash of bits I prepared on Friday: 5 pairs of riveted earrings; and 4 pairs of dangly-swinging earrings. I still had some pieces left and a number of other 'found' bits; but there were other things to do on the block - so I settled for 10.

Quite a good outcome. These types of earrings are quite time consuming for me as they have multiple layers and some of the pieces are fairly small for my hands - especially when it comes to riveting. These earrings will head to Melbourne.


  1. Busy bee Barry - nice collection :)

  2. A very good outcome, Barry! It's hard to imagine you also have a day job.

  3. VA, KR & R - thanks for checking out the latest earrings production. VA & R - must say I just get on a roll sometimes. Go well. B

  4. What a roll you are on! Can't decide which I like the most. Very desirable, all of them...

  5. C - desire is not a bad thing. B
