Cherrie from Willy-Wagtail left a nice comment in response to my secret shame post yesterday.
“Never let a mess stop your imagination from producing”
Today some jewellery bits and pieces I ordered last week arrived and rather than put them away until my sewing room is clean, I remembered Cherrie’s comment, gathered up my supplies and pottered away at the kitchen bench.
I’ve seen little birdie earrings all over the place of late. Given their prevalence I thought the charms must be available somewhere – a quick search on etsy yielded the birdies and the leaves behind them. I love these!
Wings. A bit macabre? I haven’t decided, but they do look great on. These are larger than the bird pair and will work well with outfits that don’t suit a necklace.
Whipped up a necklace out of existing supplies while I was still on a creative roll.
Inspiration struck while looking for something to photograph them on. I’m sure embroidery hoops as earring displays have been done many times before although I haven’t seen it. I’m so fond of the effect that I think I’ll hang a large hoop in my bedroom for all my silver earrings!
It feels good to have actually made something of late!
