This is a first for me, creating sports team-inspired jewelry. I have become quite a fan of Seahawks football, which seems pretty rare among artists. I had a bunch of jewelry designs on my list to make this week, but all I can think about is when the next game is. So I decided to try my hand at some Seahawks earrings, since I can't afford to go to the games, but if I did, I would totally bling myself out with jewelry like this. I figure I can live vicariously through another fan, who perhaps receives these as a holiday gift from their sweetie, their mom or dad, or a sibling. These earrings would be perfect for holiday parties or even New Years Eve, and of course for game days, spirit days at work, or the office Christmas party.
The earrings feature large 20mm faux pearls with the Seahawks logo (probably unofficially) printed on them, vintage glass beads in green, carefully wire-wrapped crystal briolettes in navy blue, a few sparkling green bi-cone beads, and channel-set rhinestone rings for extra bling. They hang from silver-plated wires and the entire earring including the wire is about 3" long.
This design may change slightly as I seek out new suppliers for some of the components I have very little of, like the green glass beads. I will keep the photos current to show exactly what you will be receiving if you order from me. I prefer to produce my jewelry in very small runs to preserve the uniqueness of the design, and so it's abundantly clear that I don't have anyone else manufacturing my jewelry. I enjoy the process so much, I will probably never sell out to mass production. I do have another earring design with the Seahawks logo and the number 12 here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/260714041/elegant-seahawks-inspired-12-earrings
If you would like these delivered in time for Christmas, please place your order no later than December 12th. I have my listing set for 1-2 weeks delivery time just in case I run out of any of the materials and need to re-order, but as of mid-November I have some in stock and can ship within a few days.
Be sure to favorite my shop if you are interested in football-inspired jewelry and other wearable items. I will be adding a bracelet design and possibly some other things like legwarmers or fun hawk hats, or whatever else I can think of. Who knew that this crazy artist would turn out to be a football nut?
Also, if you know someone who is a fan of another football team, I may be able to make this design with other team colors if I can find the pearl beads for that team. Send me a message to inquire about availability and if it can be done, we can do a custom order for them.

They were larger than I imagined, which ended up being perfect for the person that I gifted them to. They were well received. Pretty, sturdy, perfect.
