I just raided Michaels Arts and Crafts today. I made a great necklace and a flirty pair of earrings. Here's a little preview!
One Love Necklace
While making this necklace, I was thinking about "love." The pendant says "One Love." I have questions about what it is intended to mean. Initially I thought "Oh, it must mean there's only one love for me," but then I was thinking, "That's not really true." I mean, I thought I loved someone in high school but that didn't work out. Is there really "One Love"? And so I started thinking about it in a different way... What if "One Love" is the love you have for yourself? You can't love anyone else until you love yourself. Now, I think the necklace represents love for yourself. Don't buy it because you love someone else. Buy it because you love yourself. One Love.
Flirty Asian-Inspired Earrings
From my mind, I have created ... the Flirty Asian-Inspired Earrings! mu hahhaa :D I am often drawn to Asian themed artwork and accessories. It's different from what I know in American culture and is very beautiful. I thought the heart-shaped coins were very unique! Stuff like that just tickles my brain. :) ♥ I love the real fans! ♥ They are usually large and painted with beautiful scenery. :)
In other news.... I just received my bachelor's diploma today! :D I am an official, certified engineering nerd! :) Sweet!
I am working on my newest creation, Fruit Salad Earrings! I finished one earring. It's very bright and colorful, not to mention fruity (haha). Now, I just have to finish the other earring and create a matching necklace or bracelet. Here's a little preview. :)
Fruit Salad Earring Preview
This Fruit Salad Earring is made with vintage fruit beads and bright silver chain and findings. I also have more charms coming in, including new Long-Earred Bunny charms. I am working on an October catalog as well.
