Time for Tea?? Charming Teabag Earrings






I love tea, don't you? Especially, all the little sandwiches and cookies attractively arranged on china plates. My favorite is Earl Gray with a touch of cream, all of which I can no longer indulge in since my MS diagnosis and subsequent very strict diet. But... that doesn't mean I can't have an occasional cuppa.

I found these absolutely darling tibetan silver teabag charms and knew they'd make adorable earrings. What do you think??

Time for tea...and a great book. Choose your favorite earwires below. Use the SS option for surgical steel which is idea if you have sensitive ears.

Glossy Olive Green Coin Pearl Choker Style Necklace, Banana Republic Green, 2016 Green






Can I just say, I LOVE this green. I wear my set regularly--goes with all my new favorite jacket from Banana Republic which my sweet husband brought home.

Minimal smooth glossy green olive green coin pearl choker style necklace wired by hand in hand antiqued brass wire added to a delicate (yet strong) vintage brass chain which I finished with tiny brass beads and a trigger style clasp.

Please note, most coin pearls are much smoother on one side than the others. My pearls are similar and I always wire the smoothest side frontward. Please note than natural hiccups in nature's process of forming pearls leave unique markings on each pearl.

Pearl is an olive green coin pearl about 15mm in diameter. Wire is raw brass. Choose your length preference at checkout.
