Summer Design Series :: Matching Earrings

Sometimes you just need to do the matching set. Although I am a believer in not wearing it all at once. It can seem like over kill, and as one of my friends likes to say it is too 'matchy-matchy.' I tend to agree.

That said, this pair is a matching set. It is that same yellow sea glass and sand colored Chinese crystals I used in the previous post. These are hoops with some serious fringe ---that swings. Not sure why exactly, but I have been in to fringe earrings lately. Can you ever get too much fringe? I think not.

Another set of photos with Kate, but this time lounging in the yard in my husband's favorite Adirondack chair. He walked out in the middle of this session grumbling that we'd stolen his chair. 

.... that would be the look on Kate's face wondering if she was about to be kicked out. And the smile when she heard me say you'll have to find another chair since we were in the middle of the photo shoot and I had earrings, bracelets, scarves, necklaces, camera lenses ... strung out carefully placed all over the yard. Last thing I needed was him to step in the middle of my work!

These are beauties! They look so pretty on Kate. I don't care for matching sets either. Just wearing 1 bold piece. I'm glad you guys got to finish the photo shoot without being kicked out!

You got me laughing about your hubby! LOL! I love the look on Kate's face!!! The earrings are fantastic!! Never too much fringe! I agree! (I went to your etsy shop to check things out and I couldn't believe you got a negative review! That was so kind of you to give money back and let her keep the earrings! Those stars should be 5 star now! Etsy should change that for you! I hope the lady was grateful!! Sure was kind of you!!!!)

Very cool earrings! I have a couple 'matched sets,' but I ever wear them together. I tried to once a few months ago, but I thought it looked too silly! Or, as you said, matchy-matchy.
