If we are friends here and we e-mail each other or if we are friends on Facebook, then you probably have heard me complain about this.
Liz of Bead Contagion decided to send me a pick-me-up and filled a padded mailer with beads in a very van Gogh color palette. I got the envelope yesterday afternoon and by bedtime, I made these. The plan was to make a necklace, but I soon reconsidered.
I made a commitment to donate 60 pair of earrings to Ears To You and have yet to send any out. For this project, I ordered niobium ear wires in various colors and thought the 5 yellow pair that came with the rainbow pack would sit around my workshop for a few years waiting for a project. But they go perfectly with these beads! So that finalized the decision to make these rounds into earrings.
So here they are~the kick-off to my 60 pair! Only 55 to go!!! Thanks Liz~ for your generosity, inspiration, and COLOR!!! You swept the grey away :-)
(flash. how cool is the glow of those center beads?!)
