Earrings are by far my favorite form of jewelry. I like to make them and  I love to wear them. It took a real effort to settle on just a few fabulous Art Nouveau sets to display here!

  1. Wow! I’d be hard-pressed to choose between the jellyfish and the opals. The dark opals would look faboo on you!

  3. I adore earrings, and love those opals! Since my piercer moved, there are no longer any professionally-certified piercing studios closer than 64 miles away, so I sadly haven’t been able to add to my current nine ear piercings since last January. My goal is to have eleven on each ear someday, since eleven is my lucky number. Of course, that depends upon whether I have the anatomy to support all the different types of ear piercings I want, and if there’ll be room for eleven on each ear.

  4. Earrings are my favourite form of jewellery too, and in fact, almost the only jewellery I wear 🙂
    I like the dangles more than anything.
