Simple earrings.....

Here's something new to look at so maybe you'll forget the ugly necklace.....
the first is a spoon earring...i've only made one - tonight i'll make the matching one. they are a gift for a friend of mine who has a thing about spoons and the "spoon theory"....they have yellow colored niobium earwires so they are non reactive with your ears, brass hammered wire, swarovski crystals and a mini brass spoon......The spoon is fairly light weight, but i guess it could be worn alone as a pin or a pendant...... ....and this is a pair of earrings I call "the secret". It is made with glass furnace beads, brass wire, fine silver beads, swarovski crystals, and carved bone monkey beads. I used brass wire instead of fine silver because i wanted to put niobium earwires on them and niobium doesn't come in silver, only yellow/red/purple/blue/green and teal! I should have been finishing up my tote, or the journals i am working on, or a peyote necklace I'm midway thru....but no, I choose simple distraction.......

Very cool earrings. I suspect I know who is getting the spoon earrings and I know she'll love them. Those monkeys look like they know some secrets about you, but they're not telling. These aren't distractions from your other projects; they're art!
