No. 12 Reflections

I’m on a green kick right now, don’t know why, but for some reason that is the first color I reach for these days. I guess it’s my new black. This pair features green glass beads with little millefioris finishing them off. So now you know what my spatula and my ladle look like. Kitchen implements are great for these shots I think. Hm, you think I should polish my stainless?

No. 11 Squiggles

Some more wire. This time with earring stoppers. To get this kind of spiral you take a length of wire and fold it in half. Bend over the folded tip and start wrapping the wire around it shaping a spiral. When you have about an inch left, separate the doubled up wires and make loops at opposite ends of the spiral. Here, I used a 6 inch length of wire that rendered a .5 inch spiral. By the way, do you like the double jump rings?

No. 8 Insomnia

Lately I’ve been suffering from craft induced insomnia. I’ll toss and turn, everyone in the house will be fast asleep while I’m pondering grand crafting schemes. This pair was put together at 1:00 a.m. using variations on the ladder stitch. If I had continued with the seed bead/crystal pattern on top, I could have turned it into a ring. Happy St. Patrick’s Day

The Resolution

Here is my project for the year: I want to make 99 different pairs of earrings over the course of the next 12 months. That averages about 2 pairs a week. We’ll see how I fare with this resolution.
