Playing Catch Up with Hoops

Yikes!! I am a couple of weeks behind in the 100 Pairs in 100 Days Challenge hosted by Copper Diem. Starting tomorrow, it will be two pairs a day until I'm fully caught up. Meanwhile, there are some fabulous designs being posted over on the Pinterest page, where I'll be adding the following seven pair, all in one of my favorite fashion statements: mixed metal hoops.

Super light and oh-so-fun to wear!

  1. you had me at hello! Those first pair roped me right in .... LOVE, LOVE those ... but then you just kept going, and going. WOWZA what a collection! There will be some happy ladies receiving these. You done good my friend

  2. Wow! I love your earrings especially the first pair as I like the use of seed beads, nice!

  3. All are beauties! Those first 3 pair are my favorites here. The two for the beadweaving and the other for the simplicity. Big Love!

  4. Gorgeous earrings I love them all, but those first ones are my favorite.

  5. Just love the classy beading AND how skillfully you mix those metals, Karin :) Gorgeous!

  6. All are wonderful, but the first pair is my favorite - wonderful finding, and the delicate fringe is perfect. And this from someone who normally doesn't care for beadwoven earrings! Fantastic collection!

  7. Quite the collection! I love how different they all are starting from the same design element of the circle or hoop.

  8. I agree with Therese - love the first pair the best but they are all great. You are so creative to come up with such different designs. I tend to get in a rut where I repeat the same pattern.
