A Little Pick-Me-Up by Jamie Hogsett10:10 AM
The skies that have been overcast and gloomy for days now and the big book deadline is rapidly approaching, so I'm feeling a little stressed and grouchy today. Something new and sparkly always seems to cheer me up though and this morning I pulled out some my Tucson purchases to make a quick pick-me-up pair of earrings.
The earrings were made in under ten minutes with blue/green small flower tarts from Glass Garden Beads hanging from orange glass rounds and rondelles from Sylviebeads. I used non-tarnish silver 22 gauge Soft Flex Craft Wire to make the ear wires and do the wire wrapping. There is something about the color combination of orange, aqua, and peridot that makes me feel happy.
Hopefully wearing these earrings today will snap me out of my funk and bring a little sunshine to your day too!
