Day 329: Two Pairs of Earrings

“The very purpose of our doctrine is to serve others. In order to do that you must remain in society and not isolate yourself from the rest.”

-The Dalai Lama

I can’t be a rock

or an island

no matter how hard I do try

no man

or woman

can truly islolate themselves

Anyway, today I made two pairs of earrings. I’m in a swap coming up that is an “earring explosion” or something. Basically, I have to make ten pairs of earrings. So I thought I would get started.

This is the first pair. I don’t know….I’m not sure how I feel about them.

Then the second pair, is a simple pair of hoops.

What do you think? I will be making more pairs. I need more seed beads.

Today, I have to drop off a sample for a forthcoming workshop. I wish I could just stay home. But I can’t. What happened to the days when I could walk around the city all day and not get home tired and achy? Man.

One thing I do want, is some more jewelry making supplies. I am in a lot of jewelry making swaps because I realized that jewelry is so much cheaper to ship! Even internationally! And, I love jewelry and cannot get enough, so who knows? Maybe I will get lucky and get some pairs of earrings that I love.

I was in a swap on craftster some time ago, where my partner sent me like 5 pairs of earrings! I loved them all so much! I love jewelry. My mother does too, but she prefers gold jewelry, and not plated, but real. I actually just love my jewelry to be handmade, although I have fallen victim to the earrings at Target.

Well, that’s all for now. Wow, do you realize that there is about 36 more days for my 1 year challenge? Holy moly! So exciting. Maybe I’ll have a giveaway. Maybe.

Don’t worry, after that I’ll still be blogging, though I don’t think I will be blogging EVER SINGLE DAY. And I’ll still do  the quotes thing, because it’s nice, don’t you think?
