Earrings: A Compulsion To Make A Baker's Dozen

I had a yen to make some earrings this weekend, and I ended up making a baker's dozen! I tried some new ideas, and I had fun learning a little bit about wire working.  I didn't stop until I ran out of some supplies - so now I must purchase some more wire in a variety of weights. I want to learn more wire wrapping.

Some of these earrings will be kept, some will be given as gifts and some are for sale. I can't believe that I had such a fulfilling time playing in my long neglected bead box! I think that making earrings will remain " a once in awhile" passion, or perhaps I won't make earrings again until I go to the bead store the next time!
I'm especially fond of the wrapped limey green briolettes on the lower left (I made two pairs!) , the turquoise, lime and purple glass bead earrings (upper left) and the labradorite and amber set on the middle. Of course - I couldn't resist the cat faces!
Some duo tone glass beads in blue and green, dyed turquoise agate, rhodochrosite and silver (they have more pink in them than this image shows), simple little pearls with Swarovski crystals and squares made of pink dyed agate.
 Large baroque pearls with silver and Swarovski crystals. Simple and elegant.
