I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I blogged! Sorry. The time went by fast. But I was being productive. I got my taxes done last week and cleaned out my desk files. I also spent some time replenishing my jewelry inventory. I still haven’t recovered from sending everything to Texas and I sold a lot at the last sale. But I like offering new things every month so I don’t mind. I’ll have some sneak peeks for you later but today I have a picture of my favorite earrings for you.
I like to make some elaborate & fun jewelry but when I’m at work or just doing my regular daily routine my jewelry is pretty plain. These two pair are what I find myself wearing over & over. The teardrop beads are vintage — 1940s Japan. I love that none of them are exactly the same size or shape. The clear beads are also handformed & vintage. These go with everything! I had a little scare last week because I wore my teardrop earrings without the backs on them. When I got home one was missing! So I immediately ordered more beads. A few nights later I heard Maowie hacking up a furball under the stairs. When I ran to get her… there was my other earring. Luckily she hadn’t thrown up on it! But now I do have lots of extra beads so I’m gonna make more of these simple earrings to put in the shop next month.
