The urge to create a trillion earrings for Bazaar Bizarre has been such a neat one to follow:
earrings can provide just the right pop of color and spirit in a grey day and there are endless possibilities for shape and structure, a few of which I've been exploring.
It has been an incredibly work-heavy day: ten fresh leather koi lay tooled and uncolored on my marble block and eight pair of earrings hang from the jewelry tree (of which there are three for my table!)
and I have that feeling....
ladies, if you've done a craft show or prepared for something big you know that feeling: kind of like after raking up a yard full of leaves - tuckered out and fully aware of the magnitude of your exertion.
Or maybe a more concise comparison would be that of a squirrel stacking up acorns for the winter and observing its cache with a high-pitched happy cartoon sigh.....
It's satisfying and exciting!
I'll be laying off the shop updates for a while with a few exceptions: there are some pairing rings I am working on for this week that I think you will really enjoy - but in general, I'll be keeping most things for the show.
Expect a realllly large update-y day on the 14th - OH! before I forget -- the final day for shipping for Holiday Orders will be the 21st in the morning, no possible exceptions - just some information I find important I share with you!
I'll be flying home to my original parental units in Pittsburgh, PA (go, Steelers!!) on the 22nd:
where will you be going?
