Birthday Earring Winners

It's April Fool's Day!   What a fun day, huh?
Okay, here's the winners from the
Birthday Earring Give-a-Way this weekend.
(Seriously - No Foolin'!)
There were only 11 commnets,...
I guess with the Bead Soup Blog Party 1st Reveal and
Easter this weekend, it wasn't a good weekend
to have a give-a-way.  LOL!
Since there were two pairs of earrings and I asked you all to tell me which pair you liked best, I seperated you into two groups:
Copper with Sari Silk and
Copper with Ceramic Bead
There were 5 of you who like the Copper w/Sari Silk earrings and 6 of you who liked the Copper w/Ceramic Bead earrings. 
1st up is Number 5 for the Copper with Sari Salk:
My Life in Dog Years!
2nd up is Number 4 for the Copper with Ceramic Bead:
Jan W.
Congrats to both of you!
I hope you enjoy your earrings and I will be contacting you via email this afternoon so you can send me your mailing address and I can get these popped in the mail to you!!
Everyone have a great week and play nicely with your friends and family today for April Fool's Day - okay?! 
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Fun!

It's My Birthday!

And that means YOU are getting a gift!
Yes indeed!

Leave a comment below on this post with which pair you like best and what you'd wear them with and on Monday I'll let the random number generator choose two lucky winners! Make sure to leave a valid email in your comments so I can contact you.
Thanks to all of you who read my blog and leave comments - I cannot tell you how much I love reading them each day!
Sometimes, birthday's can be hard. 
Not sure how I feel about this one yet.
This is number 48.
Wow. That felt weird to write.
Oh well, it is what it is, right?   It is just a number after all. (That's my story,.....)
And, I'd like to wish fellow birthday gal,
a very Happy Birthday today, too! 
Everyone have a great weekend and feel free to pass this along to your friends so they can comment and have a chance to win as well!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Birthday Fun!
Oh yeah, and don't forget, the first reveal of  Lori's Bead Soup Blog Party is Tomorrow, so be sure to hop on over to her blog and check out all the wonderful soups every one will have cooked up!!

Played around with some colors

Went back to basics,.....

Time to Play!

What kinds of things do you like to do or create when you have one of those rare days where you can just do anything,...and your beads, findings and all your goodies are just staring you in the face?

I filled orders, finished laundry and cleaned the house yesterday so today,'s time to play!

I love these days! 

I did snag some rather cool vintage crystals and beads on a little outing with my hubby this week.

So, now it's time to do that playing thing I mentioned!

Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and PLAY TIME!



**Unfortunately I have no macro shots this week, so I'm unable to play along with I Heart Macro. But you should stop by and check things out because there's some really cool pics this week!**

Medusa's Earrings - Week 4 - Year of Jewelry 2011

Medusa called!  She wants her earrings back!!

Okay, so she really didn't call, and I didn't really swipe her earrings or anything. I just created earrings that she would probably have called me to special order,...ya think?!

The Theme for Week 4 of Year of Jewelry Project 2011 (One Project, Once a Week, For a Year!!) was "Wild and Wicked" - that should have been easy, right?  But, alas, just like every other week, so many things came to mind,...biker chic earrings, rock and roll earrings, spikey/hammered stoner earrings,.....yep, I had visions of all sorts of designs (especially earrings) dancing through my head as I slept last night,.....but this is what came out of my hands today as I created.

24g and 18g copper wire was formed, forged, hammered,....and hammered again and again, wire wrapped and then oxidized with LOS and polished up a bit before laying them out to photograph. 

You can take my word for it when I tell you that the photos look wwwwaaaaayyyyy better than the earrings look in person. I mean seriously peeps, the husband even uttered the dreaded words "kinda artsy-crafty" !!! (insert shudder motion here!) 

But yes, they are rather 'artsy' and I was very 'crafty' with how I 'chaos' wire wrapped portions and did some portions very neatly and how I used anti-tarnish copper and raw copper so when I dipped them in LOS only parts of them would turn colors....and the green little peridot gemstones?  Cute touch, don't you think?  Those, dear children, are the color of Medusa's Eyes!!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Wild and Wicked Earrings (or any jewelry for that matter!!)
