WIP Wednesday: Oodles of Earrings

What a whirlwind the last few weeks has been! I've been writing and doing a major purge of the office/craft room and this morning before work, I started working on a few pairs of earrings. I had very simple direction from the recipient: the colors to use were green, purple, and a melon/salmon. After sorting through my beads and clarifying that silver was the metal of choice, I just studied beads and findings until ideas formed.
Beads I had on hand

It was nice to just play around until something worked. Very therapeutic.
Beads and findings ... what will become of them?
So far I have completed two pairs of earrings and am almost done with a third. Onward and upward!
Prehnite beads and sterling silver spacer beads
Amethyst beads, sterling silver wire, and "upcycled" sterling silver toggles

This weekend, I should have a lot of time to get back to those artsy WIPs. What are you working on?
