This Week's Project: Springy Winter White Sparkles

This week's project is a fun, springy, wintery white pair of earrings. Since my hair has gotten a bit longer, these are the perfect length so the sparkly dangle seems to just float in mid-air and looks very fun!

I had mentioned earlier in the week, the springy part of these earrings were previously twisted wire stars from Rings & Things.

Unraveled from the star shape, they have become a perfectly rigid "spring" to hang some dangly beads from. Pretty simple, but at the same time a tad unusual, hey, that sounds just like a description of me! :)

I hope you are all having a fun weekend! I also wanted to take a minute here
to thank Susan, most commonly known as "Capitola Girl". She just received a copy of my new book, "A Bead in Time" and blogged about it earlier today. I was having a moment AGAIN of "I'm not worthy"!!

When I first started blogging, I came across her blog which is so beautiful and professionally done, but I really connected with her jewelry designs because there is always something unique about them that really appeals to me.

Thanks so much "Capitola Girl"!!!
