Discus Longs

Discus Longs - Earrings

I've been making earrings in my Discus series for several years now. All that really means is that I take round porcelain pieces and see how many different ways I can use them in an earring design. Nothing too groundbreaking, for sure, but fun for me nonetheless.

I really like this new style a lot. I had the idea for the ear wire yesterday and dreamed about it all night long. Once I awoke I got to work and happily they worked out just as I had planned.

Discus Longs in Cobalt - Earrings

Very simple and modern. I gave the sterling a nice oxidized finish and tumbled them for that lovely warm and weathered look.
I have listed a few pairs in the shop today and will probably put the rest in tomorrow.

In other news... I have my first show of the season this weekend. I am under stocked and underexcitied (new word!) to say the least. I am still not over my show burnout from last year. I am cutting my shows this year by half in an effort to not become a bitter old whiny craft show hater. I know doing shows is an exciting thing for those new to doing shows, so I really don't want to be a killjoy. However....... keep your day job.
Just kidding! Kind of! ;)

Anyhoo, I am thinking about doing an Extra shop update on Monday. I have a small batch of things ready to go but I think Monday will be the soonest I can do it. I'll try to preview tomorrow before I leave for the show set-up. And to those who have wondered, I WILL be making more owls!!! I realize that many of you who wanted one did not get one in the last update. So, I am currently making approximately 500,000 and hopefully that will do it. They should be ready next week (not in the next update). Stay tuned...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR THE EXTRA OWLS. I was oh so sad that I had missed everything last time. I get off work way to late, so this time I will get a day-time site watcher :)

I love those earrings, the wires are fantastic!
I have to say I brought my owl to show off, and was a little afraid someone was going to steal it! He is going to get dressed up tonight on a fabulous necklace :-)
can't wait for the next update!
And I give you credit for doing the shows at all, they are a lot of work!
