I’m so excited. I found out today from my online friend Melissa J. Lee that a book I submitted earrings to last year was now out. It’s called Earrings, earrings, earrings! and is edited by Barb Switzer. I hurriedly went in for the kill on Google to discover the beautiful cover with a pair of my earrings on front! Yippee!
Mine are the ones on the orange/peach background on the top right…the sequin ones. I know I gave it a much more clever title in the book, but if you know me in person and have actually seen my work, you know these are a pair that I make quite frequently from sequin trim. See?
They are a good pair of earrings, cause they aren’t too big, but their not too dainty either. Young and old alike have worn them. Last year, I volunteered at a halfway house of sorts and the girls there made them for a craft night. They were super excited about their finished creation and surprised at how cute and easy they were to make.
I’ll give a much more in depth review once I get my actual copy in the mail. I’m assuming it went to my old address, so I’m hoping it gets forwarded here any day now. I can’t wait to see my other designs as well as the designs of my multi-talented jewelry-making online friends!
Until next time Swellions!
P.S. Please cross your fingers for me tonight as I have had a nagging minor sore throat all day. I took Zicam a couple hours after it started and have been taking each 3 hours after that. I’m hoping I can nip it in the bud this evening…going to even go to bed early (for me that’s a major “GASP”). Everyone has been sick at the office and I was hoping I wouldn’t become a casualty.
