Introducing the new "Toru Series" of Earrings - and some corny jokes

The new "Toru Series" Earrings - NZ$45
I've been playing with this new design for a little while - they came about when I needed a simple little earring to match a very detailed necklace, and I needed to make a  longer shape to suit a stylish local lady.
The other day I asked on Facebook what this series should be called and Rebecca came up with "The Toru Series".
In case you were wondering, you readers who are not kiwis, toru means 3 in Maori.
They are made using my little handmade glass "spacer" beads with something tiny between each bead - maybe Swarovski crystal or a similar glass or metal bead.
The findings are still all sterling silver so they won't do anything nasty to your ears like base metal can.
They are about 2.5cms (1 inch) long and are hung on shorter French style ear hooks.
A small selection of colour
The possibilities for this series are virtually limitless!  That's why I haven't put them onto the website.
If there's a colour you fancy that you don't see here - please let me know and I'll take photos and make them up especially to your wishes.  As always, your wish is my command :)!

And now for some corny jokes!
