REVEAL: Whimsical Monkey Earring Swap

Oh Lord, I can not believe I am LATE for this reveal, AND being late or not showing for a blog hop is one of my pet peeves too!
I apologize! I TOTALLY forgot about this! [Technically my post isnt late as I got it up on reveal day but mailing was 😪 ]

A while back I signed up to take part in the Whimsical Monkey Earring Swap hosted by Jessica Murray

My very patient partner for this swap was Laura Medeiros. We went back and forth via e-mails and agreed we'd swap three pairs of earrings. I asked a few questions to try and figure out her style. She told me she liked dangles, but not too long (me either); she liked all colors but wasn't into pastels (me either); and she didn't like anything with a "manufactured look" (me either!)

I also took a look at her Facebook photos and saw that she has a unique style, seems into steampunk and she ALSO belly dances!, or so it appears from her photos - YOU GO GIRL! Overall I'd say she seems like a fun-loving person!

So here is what I created for her -

Pair #1  
I used my brass coils and some silver and brass findings - mixed metallics are some of my favs.

Pair #2
I've had these pretty lampworks for a while - think they give these little swirlies a real sassy look!

Pair #3
I paired up some of my polymer clay roses with some brass findings to which I wired a few beads, just for a different look. 

I hope she likes them. They probably aren't steampunk exactly but I think they are unique.Because I forgot the date I haven't mailed them out but will get them in the mail TONIGHT!
