Scorched Earth goodies

This post is long over due. I bought some really cool drops back in July from Scorched Earth on etsy. When I was shopping, I had in mind to make earrings, since the drops are sold in pairs. I went a little hog wild, and bought way more than I needed - I mean really, how many pairs of earrings do I need to make. While each drop is OOAK due to the nature of handmade things, they are also quite similar, and every earring would look like the next, just a different (but fabulous) color. Included in my package were some "gifts". I love getting gifts, and I really loved these. Among the gifts were the spike drops in different colors, with stripes. I had not picked them, but I loved them. Going through the package, unwrapping each piece, they were in a pile on the the table. That's when it occured to me that  they would all make a fabulous necklace. So, I made 2 pair of earrings (but did not take photos of them) and a fabulous necklace. Everytime I wear it, I get compliments. I seems to go with everything in my closet. When worn, the drops are "crowded" and overlap a bit.

The photography on etsy is much better than mine - the colors are so gorgeous in person!
I'm ordering more, to make some Christmas gifts!


  1. I love this necklace. I can see why you get compliments when you wear it.

  2. Wowzer, that's a necklace and a half!!!! You must turn quite a few heads when you're wearing that beauty!!
    So glad you enjoyed them, and hope you'll have as much fun making your Christmas gifts!!
    xo :O)
