Yesterday I had a request for two pairs of earrings for a girl at work to match her red and pink outfits. Its been a while since I have made any jewellery and as I sat with my box of tricks last night I remembered how therapeutic the whole experience is. I love sitting with hundreds of shiny beads in front of me, deciding which size and colour looks best, and in which combination.
I got a bit carried away and ended up making several pairs, one of which I have been modelling today. I wear quite a lot of black to work, mainly because it is easy and doesn't take much brain power early in the morning, when quite frankly I am not at my best. These earrings are a new design and I quite like them as they are a bit normal to the ones I normally make...what do you think? All feedback gratefully received, especially if I am going to set up the Etsy shop! (work in progress)
These ones are a more standard design but still look pretty, I think. Hopefully Kerri will like them.
I have been to work day and it has been manically busy, which is great, but it's been so grey and horrible outside! I hear tomorrow is going to be the same. I do hate wet grey Sundays, especially when I have been sat in an office all day on the Saturday. I think some cooking may be in order tomorrow. Mum has made the ginger cake from previous posts today and I popped in to see her and Dad on the way home from work. The cake looked and smelled fabulous. I don't think I can force any more ginger cake upon the work lot so may have to try something new tomorrow. I am quite tempted by Nancys (Philosophyoflists) cherry marble cake but think it looks a bit beyond me..she has more patience than me! It must come from having children!
I forgot to show you the incredibly girlie heart earrings. I was just playing around really, with some new beads - I bet Barbie would love them!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far...
