Opal Earrings

Lately I have been busy with all things NOT jewelry...building a fence (pics to come at some point) knitting holiday projects...

...and hosting Thanksgiving among other things...

But I have found some time to work on a custom project for a pair of earrings.

Earlier this year a friend (Andrea) bought an opal necklace from me for her daughter's birthday in October. Andrea also wanted me to make some earrings to match as a Christmas I went shopping! I wanted to find something that was similar in shape and color and was lucky enough to find a pair of opals that matched at the Bead Gallery.
In keeping with the 'flowy' design of the pendant, I decided to make a loop at the top of each opal (similar to the pendant), and then to have the ear-wire come through the loop. This would make the earrings dangle with a bit of movement. The outcome...

Stay tuned, I have another custom project for an earrings and pendant set.

Up, up, and away!

Yet another reason my blog and Etsy have been a wee bit quiet...

We'd been trying to plan a 'stay-cation' for a while and we finally managed to set aside a weekend. One Saturday afternoon we went to some workshops at Irene's where we learned how to give each other neck and head massages, foot massages, and went to a workshop on meditation. Sunday was really the big day though, we ate a big 'ol (overpriced) lunch at Melting Pot and I surprised Brian by scheduling a 'discovery' flight at the Ann Arbor Airport. We went up in a 4 seater with an aviation instructor and had ourselves a blast! Brian flew to Jackson and I got to fly back and have a front seat view when the instructor took us on crazy turns and on a 'pencil drop'. It was an awesome weekend and much needed couples time. Here are a few more pics...

Why so quiet?

I's been pretty quiet on my blog and Etsy shop lately.
You may have seen these...
or these...

But other than that it's been pretty low key, here are a few reasons why...
Distraction #1 (who knew mufflers could have such acrobatic ability)

Distraction #2 (Halloween at work- This year I was in charge of coordinating efforts for our annual Halloween party at Cayman. We were Indiana Jones and Obstacles)

If you didn't guess it, Evan is Indiana, Rana is Henry (Indi's dad), Laura is a boulder and I am a snake pit. Awesome. Hope you had a happy Halloween.
