Not up to much crafty wise lately... as always being busy with regular life gets in the way! I'm actually using this blog post to distract me momentarily from working on a chapter of my thesis :P Unfortunately, the most crafting I can muster right now is to look wistfully at my piles of fabric and my drawers of yarn.... le sigh. This whole past week was strange for me too... we're transitioning to Fall here and its been getting a bit cooler, which I love, but I think I might have been sick without really knowing it because I'd get home from work at like 6 pm and literally FALL ASLEEP! The whole week! So I don't know what was up with that but hopefully it was just a dumb phase :D

I also moved to a different division at work: before I was working in an area that covered subjects like chronic disease, substance abuse, suicide prevention, foster care, etc. Now I'm in a division that covers land, culture and history (my specialty areas!). Although I'm sad that I won't be able to work in my former area, I really love where I am now... it's really more congruent with my background and interests (plus I got a $$$ raise!). So I'm still adjusting.

Anyway, here are some earrings I made a while back... I wear them all the time! These are all wire wrapped (no soldering, boo!) using various semi-precious stones/ coral. I'm lucky because my ears aren't sensitive, so I can just stick whatever in them; the wire is gold fill or something cheapy like that.

I forget what kind of stone the faceted dark blue one is, but the yellow one is a nice warm topaz and the milky light blue one is Peruvian Opal.


  1. Congrats on your raise $$$$!!! :D
    These earrings are so cute! ^^


  2. Yay for the raise!! :D And love the earrings! They're really pretty~

  3. Congrats on the job move!
    Those earrings are pretty!

  4. Congratulations for your raise! I wish I had those earrings! My ears aren't sensitive either! Waaahh!!! :-( {;-)}

  5. Complimenti, sono un paio più bello dell'altro... un abbraccio e buonissima serata
