First, I created these long dangle earrings using darling little pierced MOP ivory charms from the Vintage Groove line, combined with beautiful Bali sterling silver ear wires and deep green freshwater pearls. I think these are now one of my favorite earrings I've ever made!
Unfortunately, two designs that I absolutely loved didn't make "the cut" because they didn't use enough Vintage Groove product. So I went back to the drawing board and came up with this final design, which was happily accepted and will be posted on the Making Memories blog today. Yeah! It uses nothing but Vintage Groove products, except for the tiny little pearl I dangled at the bottom to balance out the pink rose charm at the top.
As you can see, I was REALLY inspired by the product I was working with—which is always a wonderful thing for a designer. I'm very honored to have been asked by such a great company like Making Memories to participate in their blog as a Guest Designer and I hope their readers feel as inspired as I was! *Ü*
