I've been busy here at Quartzsite - Its too cold to go hiking or four wheeling so I sit in the trailer and read and make jewelry. Its a rough life I know.
Three of these six items are made from some of the shells we found in Florida.
Feather Earrings - the Long and the Short of It!
But, first of all - here are some FUN earrings....Made with brown and white and grey toned fleathers and copper chain you have a 'short' earring that is about 5 1/2 inches in length with a cute copper key hanging off of the bottom. The other earring is a full 10 inches plus!!! in length! Again, the feathers, the chain, and the key, plus a dangle a the bottom of the earring with sparkles and a small stone. Wonderful stocking stuffer for those teenagers in your family....I am selling them for $15 on etsy but on sale on my blogger site for $10.

Silver toned findings including a toggle closure complete this 19 inch necklace. The pendant is an additional two inches in length. $20
