Earrings - Gift Box & Special Guest Blogger!

Hello blogging friends!  Today, I have some earrings and a gift box to share with you.  This past Friday was my mom's birthday and as part of her birthday gift I made her some new earrings and altered a little gift box to put the earrings in.

Before I share the earrings I want to let everyone know that tomorrow (Monday, May 20th, 2013) I will have a very Special Guest Blogger!!  I am so excited!!  Any guesses as to WHO it might be?  Be sure to stop back tomorrow to find out!! ;-) 

Here is the first pair of earrings.  I used tear drop shaped jade colored beads, bronze flower spacers and small round light green beads.

For the second pair I used small clear beads, larger round purple beads, rhinestone spacers and light blight crystals beads.

For the third pair I used champagne crystals and silver flower bead caps.

I think the forth pair is my favorite!  I used filigree bead caps, rose crystal beads, flower spacers and light pink crystal beads.

For the fifth and final pair I used silver metal filigree flowers from ButterBeeScraps and dark blue gem drops.  

I can't remember for sure but I think I picked up this box at the dollar store.  It had a little white bow on the top that I carefully removed.  Then I made a rosette directly on top of the box.  I used some tulle trim (from Hobby Lobby) and some eyelet trim (from Joann's).  

I used hot glue to adhere the ribbon and I just kept going around in a circle until I reached the center.  Then I added a little more hot glue, bunched up the tail end of the lace, gave it a little twist and pushed it down in the center of the rosette.

I hope you enjoy seeing some of the jewelry pieces I designed.  Let me know what you think! ;-)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see who the Special Guest Blogger is!!

Hugs & Smiles


  1. Wow they are all beautiful Heidi but I think if I had to choose just one it would be the pink...only because I am partial to the color itself. The gorgeous box is a gift itself. Hope that your Mother had an awesome birthday and that you have had an awesome weekend. Hugs ♥

  2. Heidi these are so pretty, your Mom is going to love them!
    And the gift box is gorgeous! I just love the eyelet flower! Thank you so much for the inspiration and for sharing !

  5. Heidi, these are all gorgeous but I would have trouble choosing between the pink rose ones and the blue filigree ones! When you run out of people to send to let me know and I will gladly send you my address and model your items in Tennessee!!
