Made by You Mondays:Hand Embroidered Earrings

Hi everyone! Here's one of the things I've been working on recently, Southwest inspired, hand embroidered velvet earrings:

Front only: hand embroidered flowers & stitching on velvet

Back only: hand stitching on vintage fabric

Front & back: wire wrapped beaded fringe using black seed beads (extras from a beaded sweater), copper beads, clear glass seed beads (from the ends of purchased bead strings), green glass beads, square metal frame, pink copper wire, vintage gold color wire 
These were made for a jewelry challenge, to be shipped out soon.
So, this is what I've been working on, what have you been working on lately?

Stop by Made by You Mondays on Skip to My Lou for many other projects & even a tutorial or two (or a hundred):

Oh, I just love these!! And you're shipping them out? Is it for a swap?

Hi Debbie, thank you! They are for a swap. I have another pair of embroidered earrings (teardrop shape, cotton) & I plan on adding more of these to the shop. I really like the velvet.

I really love these. My ears have been "unpierced, ie: grown in) for a while now, but I've recently decided to re pierce them and get out all my old earrings again. *And* of course, buy some new ones These are really beautiful, I love the idea of velvet. What an endless variety of images you could put on them! Beautiful and creative!
(Can you tell I want some :-)
