Yes, I was in a frenzy in the two weeks leading up to this sale. I made all of these. It was about the most fun I've had with power tools since Mr. Kaplan's wood shop class at West Rocks Middle School. I kicked tuchus in that class.
I had a brief moment of panic that led to a whole new level of commitment to jewelry making. I'd planned on finishing these babies up at two jewelry classes the other week instead of one. And ... the instructor was sick.
Panic! What would I do without the classroom's power tools?
Help me, Home Depot! You have to imagine the hubby's reaction when I lugged home a brand, spanking-new Dremel tool. Y'know Homer Simpson and donuts? That's the reaction. You'd think I brought home a vibrator. It does kinda look like one. Except for the sanding and buffing attachments. *shudder*
Wonder if I could do my nails with them, though? Just a thought.
So, yeah, I'm committed now. Gotta make that Dremel tool earn its keep.
Oh, and if you see any earrings you like, they're all up at Etsy. Prices start at $15 for the copper, up to $22 for the silver. As always, shipping is free.
The first thing I made in my silversmithing class. Oooh, I'm so excited!
Here's my official description:
A sweet confection of Blue Lace Agate set in silver and hand-stamped around the edges,
with dangly Akoya (saltwater) pearls. Note the back loop -- it's
designed to hang low on the lobe for a sultry look.
