First Fifty Holiday Earrings...Yeah!!! I Made It!

Last month I challenged myself to make 50-100 holiday earrings.  Well, guess what?
I MADE IT!!!! Yeahhhh!!! Here are the first 50:

Spent most of yesterday stamping and punching cardstock... just in time for a show later this week.  Here is my first attempt at cost efficient display. Received the hammered copper tub as part of a gift last year am glad I hung on to it!!! Installed a cardboard shelf with slats into the tub to give the earrings some height and exposure. I am still fine tuning so let me know if you have any suggestions ;)

Still have plenty of time before the holidays and look forward to making more!

A Stroll Through the Carefree Fine Art and Wine Festival

Stopped by Carefree Fine Art and Wine Festival today. They had beautiful weather, wish I could say the same for yesterday. This was a juried exhibition and the work on display was stunning.  I saw many beautiful paintings, photographs, sculpture, handcrafted fountains, furniture and jewelry.  If only I had more photos...

Inspriration From Far Places...Tibetan Earrings

Photograph of Tibetan silver earrings taken at Yunnan Museum of Minority Nationalities. The earrings include the finely detailed wings of what appear to be cranes, accented with coral drop beads. The museum located in Kunming China was opened in 1995. It explores the custom and culture of 25 ethnic minorities of this region.
