Hey folks... it's already New Earring Monday again! I have to admit that the last two weeks haven't been super productive in the earring department. Leading up to the Art Wander I was in mostly bracelet and necklace mode. The week after the show was mostly spent tagging jewelry and restocking my area at Unearthed Arts... and recuperating from a busy September! I welcome October and a (hopefully) slightly less hectic schedule.
I haven't been a total slacker. I did manage to complete two of the four special orders that came out of the Art Wander that were for earrings. So I guess that's my theme this time!
First up, a pair of earrings made for a new customer. She brought me a pair of earrings on long, arched ear wires with some bright lampwork beads. She liked the style but wanted something more neutral. I didn't have any art beads that fit the bill for her, but I was able to pull out a couple of other boxes of beads to show her some options. She ended up liking some Czech glass saucer beads in s funky iridescent light blue and brown. There's color there but it's subtle.
My other special order came from an ex-coworker who found a necklace that she loved but needed earrings to go with it. Again, I was able to pull out some of my bead boxes to show her some options for custom earrings. (This is one of the best things about being a studio on the tour instead of a guest artist... I've got all my supplies at my fingertips and can easily adapt a jewelry piece or make something new for a customer.)
