Yeah, yeah, yeah...
I know that was a terrible impression of Elton John. I should have pulled out my sparkly star-shaped glasses. Oh well, next time. Until that day, here are some shiny things for you to enjoy!
Etched copper, branch beads, mixed with some sterling silver. Those leaf cuff bracelets rock my world. I love them and had to make one just for me! I did a little low heat treatment to change the color of the copper to look like fall leaves. Me and metal, we are getting tight.
And I wasn't planning to make earrings with a statement, but somehow they just happened. After I made the house with the xo, the ribbon just seemed like the right thing to add. I might call them, "Come Home" or "Bring them Home". I could see them for people with loved ones in the armed services or for a breast cancer survivor, although I would probably add pink cherry blossom beads to the bottom. Houses are one of my favorite symbols, more on that later. So many meanings into such a tiny pair of earrings. Back to the bead cave for me. Happy Creating!
