Cat got your eye? - expanding my inventory

Last night I had about an hour to kill so I decided to design some earrings.  I never really have a plan when I sit down to create inventory I just let the beads or yarn speak to me and tell me what to create.  This time it was the cat's eye glass that caught my eye (and the cat's too...hehe).  I haven't used it in a while so I decided to create a short line of cluster earrings using the cat's eye glass chips I have.  I decided to call it 'sharp iridescence' because of the iridescent glow they have in the light and the odd shapes of the chips.  I found one almost perfectly oval bead and a few squashed hour glass shaped ones.  Each bead is unique which is what makes chip beads so awesome.
When adding to my inventory of earrings, I usually look at the earrings I have first and try and choose different types or colors.  I noticed a lacking in reds so I started with those.  By the end of the evening I had 11 new pairs of cluster earrings, in just about every color.  This afternoon I went outside to take pictures of my new creations so you all could see.  Click the link to my online album to the right to see all the items I have.  They will all be listed in my shop soon as well.  You can check out a snapshot of my items for sale in the box at the bottom left of this window.  The link to my shop with all my items for sale is above in the welcome note.
