Earrings to Wear Alone or with Statement Necklaces

Amber Globe Earrings

Banana Beach Earrings


While creating the series of statement necklaces inspired by Japanese fishing floats I started setting aside some lampwork and other interesting beads to use in earrings.  My usual rule of thumb when wearing statement jewelry is to have one piece be the focal and if you wear other jewelry have them play supporting roles.  In other words, if you wear a necklace that is telling a significant story wear earrings that don't steal the narrative and visa versa.

Depending on your style these earrings can stand alone too.

Shipwrecked, Too



While naming that first pair at the top I made myself a note and ended up creating a small series of fun earrings inspired by international beaches I'd like to visit.  That's for another post.


"A happy new year! 

Grant that I may bring no tear to any eye when this year in time shall end.

Let it be said I've played the friend,

Have lived and loved and labored here,

And made it a happy year."  Edgar Guest
