Yesterday was earring day at my house. There was a day when I never did beaded earrings, but I find that I like a nice little sparkly at my neckline and I can always manage to bead up a pair quickly if there is a color I want.

Last night myself and friends were off to the Walkabout in South Park San Diego. And I needed appropriate jewelry to wear with my new slouch. I came up with these two pairs and opted for the simpler pair on the right.



The first pair of these were done for the book and I gifted them to Nathalie the wonder editor at Lark. She was absolutely delighted and it seems that she's now gotten the beading bug. Another beader among us!




















The second pair I wasn't wild about at first but then Linda tried them on and their gentle swinging enabled one to appreciate both sides of the design. Basically they are reversible. Jill and I both agree, when in doubt add fuschia and so I did.
















The walkabout was great fun with the Grove at the center of it all (in my world at least), Scoop next door with delicious ice cream and cupcakes and Junc Boutique down the street with fresh eclectic art jewelry and clothing.

Today I need to do serious work ......

I love them! I like your thought of when in doubt add fuschia! Now I want to make some beaded earrings today!

Wow, Marcia! You are fast. My copy of Sally's book just arrived. I love the color you chose for the wrap. I really like the Crinkly Blouse jacket, but 10 skeins of linen is kinda spendy...

Great earrings I love both especially the colors and the fuschia just pops - I want to make earrings too. I think I will have an earring day.

Hey Lisa, it was a really easy knit, really a few hours worth and something wearable. I'd like to do the white mohair cardigan, but first there is a february lady sweater in my future, it's a group thing, I'm the only one without one...Hannah offered Sushi, I'm coming in July!
