Fiber and Crystals....make for great fantasy earrings!

Fantasy Earrings -Handknit bead with Swarovski crystals

I just finished this pair of earrings, which took me way longer than I anticipated!!  When knitting the bead or knit accent, such as in this pair of earrings, the trick is getting both earrings to match as close as possible in size and design. I guess I like the challenge! 

Each earring has Swarovski crystals as part of their design, and most of them will have a matching Fairy Face Pin/Handknit Necklace set, which can be purchased.  For a period of time, I will be giving a $5.00 discount on any pair of earrings, when purchased with the matching necklace.

To learn more about the earrings that are currently available in my DZFANTASY shop on Etsy, click on the link below.

Below are several several more of my earring designs.  I'd love to hear some comments as to what people think of these designs...good, bad, ugly!  Would you wear them, and if not, why.  Feel free to leave your comments. 

Handknit Ribbon Yarn Beads and Swarovski Crystals

This is the Italian yarn used in this pair of earrings.

They really sparkly and shine!

Fairy Jewels Earrings
Rainbow colored ribbon yarn used for the beads.

These are just a few of the ideas I've had so far!  I'm looking forward to creating more with all the delightful yarns that I have.

I love the way your fibre works and the crystals combine together. They meld very well together. I think you have a hit there! : )
Lovely, fun site.
