Hi there. Here I am. Freezing in my studio. It's cold here in NY. Due to the rather large nature of my house and the fact that it costs me a small fortune to heat, I keep my studio a little on the cold side. Usually I can handle it and keep myself warm with a pot of tea and a few space heaters, but these past few days have been just a little too cold. So, I'm whining. Forgive me.
In other news...I've been making a lot of earrings. I love to make earrings. This pair is very long (2 1/2") and very elegant.
Starry Night, baby! Few people know this about me but I have a collection of van Gogh's Starry Night paintings. And by collection I mean I have about 18 hand painted versions of the original - some are fantastic, others look like they were painted by a blind 3 year old. One of these days I will hang them all up and take a picture. In the meantime I have made these earrings! (and just wait until you see the Starry Night components I have made for my next Extra update!...)
I call this pair Modern Relics. They look old and rusty and feature a layering technique that I've been working on.
This acanthus design is one of my old favorites. This time I put them on my new favorite long ear wire design. It's amazing how you can breathe new life into something by making a simple change...
Lastly I will share with you this colorful pair. Yellow porcelain and contrasting poppy red...delish!
All of these earrings can be found in my shop! :)
Tune in tomorrow when I will post a preview of my next Extra shop update (which will take place on Monday, the 9th at noon).
