Cannot believe how time gets away from me.....too much going on, not near enough hours to take care of it all.....or even SEE it all! Whew!
Anyway - this month's creativity prompt from A Creative Dreamer was PURPLE - which is one of my favorite colors....I am definitely a blue, purple, lavender, grey kind of gal - so this one was easy - but what?
Decided to go back to a design I have always loved. I just like it! I had these tiny wooden spools - and some pearl-y paint....so I painted a pair of them purple, then made a teeny peyote stitch strip to go around them....in purple nad pink. Oh, yeah - I love tiny!
Then I went beyond the box.....and decided to try a larger version for a necklace.... a bigger spool - same paint (which didn't look the same - interesting how size changes shades!). Then a larger version of the same peyote stitch pattern....and viola! Casual and swingy - I just love the look. Goes great with jeans....but I bet it would look good with most anything!
So...here are the pics......first the earrings:
