I am ridiculously stressed out, so when I got home today decided to make some earrings. I have very basic skills, but even so the process of going through all my random beads, putting together a nice looking combination, crimping the wire, etc. is a good way to get me absorbed in an activity that isn't me thinking about....everything.

However, I don't actually ever wear jewelry, and not wearing what I make leads to an accumulation of earring pairs that inevitably lose their partners and whatnot, so I give them away. Hence the following:

FREE TO A GOOD HOME



The bottom bead is real tiger's eye, the center bead is a dark green (it's a crappy webcam photo as the battery pack for my digital is charging...sorry), and as you can see the top bead is clear. The beads aren't uniform, but isn't that part of their charm? I'd guess the bead portion is about an inch long. The earring part is just a standard silver-color hook. They're basic (as are my skills) and probably not very trendy, but if you want them let me know!! If you take 'em apart just for the tiger's eye beads, I won't be insulted :)
 


Anyway, I have a good idea for a series of posts, but I'm not entirely sure about it. It involves food, the alphabet, and some reflections, which are maybe too self important for my own taste? I don't know...I'll have to think on it some more.

If anyone wants the earrings, leave a comment or send a PM (I only have one pair so READY SET GO!!). Who knows, if they go maybe I will put more up if I make any more good ones (I have more tiger's eye beads to play with!)
