Today is a day for making earrings. For realizing that the show season starts sooner than I would like to admit. For realizing that I have extremely low amounts of inventory. For realizing that I don't want to start the show season. At all. I really don't want to do shows this year. Sick. Of. Them.
And speaking of sick.... that's me. Yesterday it hit me a like baseball bat in the teeth. I haven't been sick in so long and I am mad about it. I feel like dirt.
Anyhoo, I'm trying to get the old earring inventory built up so I spent a good portion of the day making ear wires and putting together some earrings. The above photo shows the backs of one of my favorite new styles. The are like puffed pillows and they are large.
And this is the front!
And here they are on! See how big they are? I love them. Even my "I may vomit at any given moment" face can't hide the fact that these earrings are awesome. (sorry. I blame the meds...)
This is a new glaze combo that I am playing around with. I have to admit that in a group like this they look rather yucky. At least they do to me.
However, on their own they are stunning! The colors are amazing, all swirly and crazy. I love glaze...
I really like these two pairs of unglazed porcelain disks. They just have black stain rubbed in to highlight the dots.
Lastly, this is a design I've been meaning to play around with for a while. It takes glaze very nicely.
I was going plop some of the earrings in my Etsy shop today, but I think I am going to grab a bunny and go take a nap. I shall return. (Update - I got two pairs in the shop - more tomorrow!)
Oh, and if you came here looking for Bead Soup, it's the post right below this one... :)
