Whimsy Wednesday! Pirate Treasure and the Fae!

Hello Everyone! 
Welcome to the first Whimsy Wednesday of the new year! 
I hope it has been grand so far! I've decided to continue the current format of Whimsy Wednesday and Fini Friday(for now) as it still is useful and fun! 
In keeping with turning of the old into the new year, I've a little bit of old and new whimsy for you today! 
Let's start with the old! 
This is a fabulous golden-hued earcuff that is perfect for this Winter season! Title: Fire Fae 
Ingredients: Swarovski crystal (Fire Opal), Czech glass, brass, gold-plated earcuff.
  Why is it perfect for the Winter season? Because of the warmth and fire that leaps from it! The Faerie influence is felt in the fiery leaf and sparkling Fire Opal Swarovski crystal! I also like that it is an earcuff, rather than earrings (though there is a matching pair available!),which seem to be more unusual and therefore more exotic! This is ready for adoption in my Etsy shoppe here

And now for the new! 
Title: Treasure Trove 
Ingredients: silverplated surgical steel earwires, lead-free pewter(USA and other), metal.
A treasure trove these earrings certainly are! On the left we have a jaunty, seriously piratical flag flying from the hypo-allergenic earwire! Dangling beneath it on a intricately patterned link are two coins of a far away and mysterious land! Coins bring good luck and pirate coins doubly so! On the right we have the pirate's chest, bursting open with treasure, jewels and good fortune! Suspended just below sea-farer's trunk is the key! I love all the little details and whimsy woven through these, especially the asymmetrical design! 
These, too, are available for adoption in my Etsy shoppe right here
That's a wrap! 
I hope you have an awesome week and I'll see you on Friday!
