Finished this up last night:
And now I'm working on some earrings.
What is it with me and earrings? I have the hardest time making them. I used to make polymer clay earrings by the ton. I sold them wholesale to the big new bookstore where I used to work, lo these many many years ago. I haven't really gotten back to earring design.
Is it that I don't wear earrings anymore? I mean, I do - but not like most people. I wear three different earrings - a tiny cubic zirconium and a small plain ruby stud in one ear, and a small pearl stud in the other. For sentimental reasons. And I rarely change them. I guess I just don't relate to earrings as art or as fashion statements these days.
This is the main reason I'm forcing myself to participate in an earring swap with a beading group. I need to get over this, this whatever it is.
