Twists and Turns

Well, I stayed awake till almost 9:30 last night! Victory in the fight against jet lag πŸ™‚

It was very warm here yesterday (today, back to cool and grey) and I was dreaming of sundresses and loose flowing tops. I’m not a big fan of long earrings, but I do like them with some things–like sundresses and loose flowing tops. I usually find long earrings too heavy and too annoying to wear for very long. So I decided to see if I could make something long, light, and with a little blue in it since my daydream sundress was all blues and greens.

The result, are these twisty little dangles:


I want to make another pair and perfect the twists, so I’ll take more photos and post a mini-tutorial in a few days (including a super-simple way to make your own ear wires.)

Hoping everyone has a lovely evening (or morning!) We are set to have a little dinner and watch the Olympic opening ceremonies.

Thanks for stopping by. I love comments, so take a moment to say hello!

        Oops, sorry!

      2. Just keeping me honest πŸ™‚ By the way, I just looked at your most recent Scrummy Sunday coconut confections and they look amazing!

        Thanks πŸ™‚

  2. I like them very much. Reminds me, I need to get one of my ears re-pierced. After years of not wearing any earrings because of babies, one has closed up. It would be nice to wear some again now.

    1. Thanks! I totally understand. I did not wear earrings for several years. It was just in the last year or so that I have started wearing them regularly (when I remember!)

  3. Those are beautiful!!

    1. Thanks, Kitty! Glad you stopped by. I was just looking at the photos of your painting earlier today. Lovely.
