Western Earring Designs

Dancing Ladies in silver and Swarovski crystals

My Heart belongs in the West - silver thread and Swarovski crystals

The turquoise beads just didn't have the pizazz that I was looking for, hence the crystals.  These pictures are just a little overexposed, but I'll try to get more today so you can see the contrast better. 
What do you think?  Should I try to make more jewelry like this, or stick to other designs?

Turquoise is great with silver! You can design jewelry any way your heart desires because that is what makes your work so special.

Love these! Forgive me if I'm wrong but the second picture looks like Mickey Mouse, although I am sure they are hearts, right?! I have Disney on the brain because we are going in a week!

Beautiful! I tat too, but only very simple designs. I admire your talent.

You are all so complementary! Thank you for the encouragement.

AnnMarie, yes, I can see how they would look rather like Micky Mouse! That is funny!

Sue, do you needle tat or shuttle tat? Personally, the simple designs are still my favorites (because I don't have to think about it!).
