Earrings are fast, easy, and charming, a perfect project when you’ve only got an hour between classes and nothing to do!
Aren’t they charming? I love my bead stash, but I’ve realized it contains a lot of “statement” pieces and not so many plain beads… a result of getting everything when I was much, much younger and prone to begging my mother for the pretties. *sigh*
These definitely put me in a green-gold mood and they match my new ring! (On sale for $4 at Classics on Franklin St. in Chapel Hill, NC. The store owner was nice enough to give me a discount on a dress too.)
The green-blue beads are glass. The gold spacers are recycled from unused ear hooks I re-purposed.
I like these so much, I’m thinking about making a second pair to sell… I can put it in my Etsy when that gets up and going again! What do you think? (And if you’re interested, email/leave a comment!)
Do you sometimes feel like earrings are copping out too?
