But in the end being able to wear your own earrings, especially ones that are neutral enough to compliment your other beadwork, it's a good thing. I have short hair and I'm not dressed until I have my earrings on.
There is the danger of second earring syndrome, similar to second sock syndrome. I know this because I have had one of a pair done for two weeks and haven't brought myself to make it's mate.
Instead I moved onto these.
An inspiration from my David Chatt class, perhaps you will see the influence here. A small snippet of David 's sketchpad which I couldn't wait to try out. Of course I had to embellish, and although it's a bit tough to make out there are 2mm gold aurum crystals across the face of each cube in my diagonal diamonds. They have a very high sparkle factor.
Yesterday I completed all the prep for my craw video which I will film in two weeks. Here are just a few of the samples, these ones showing different patterning options. There will be four hours of CRAW content so I have explored a lot of different uses and variations for working with this versatile stitch.
I look forward to the actual filming, last time I had a blast. The team at Interweave is excellent and made me feel immediately at ease. They also work hard at making a quality video with excellent close ups so that you can truly see and learn.
