Crappy Day earrings

About this design:

I've been having some crappy days. I saw a similar idea, and was inspired to make these.


Seed beads in frosted white and frosted light topaz, ear-wires, and wire.

    Cute, they look like little coat hangers, with clothes hanging from them!

    Actually they are modeled after a toilet paper roll. For crappy days; when it just hits the fan.

    OK, now that I’ve stopped laughing enough to be able to type…..ROTFLOL….oh, no — here I go again!!! 8O I LOVE THESE!!! What a great design idea — your design and name of these go perfectly together! So sorry your day was crappy, but at least it inspired you and gave us the best laugh we’ve had in a LONG time!!! :D

    Your second design is terrific, too! :D You are very clever!

    Sure hope today is a better one for you, just as long as that doesn’t slow down your creative spirit! 8)

    :D Considering the rave reviews I have been getting here, and elsewhere. I am going to have to make a bunch of these. I hope they sell well.

    I did a second pair, but I changed the color of the inner ‘roll’ and the wire color.

    These look great, too! Ashen, your “crappy day” make lead to more great days, especially since this design should sell very well! :D Do you have a website where you sell these?

    For those who like to know “the rest of the story” — I received my very own Crappy Day earrings that Ashen custom created for me and they are FANTASTIC!!! Don’t hesitate to order a pair — her work is amazing in its details and she can do almost any color for the wire. Also, her price is very reasonable! I may even wear these on non-crappy days…..LOL! ;) :D Thank you so much, Ashen!

    DragonDreams says:

    Thanks for the feedback! You are welcome Lynn. :D I am sure any crappy day graced with these earrings will quickly become a funny one, especially after showing off the earrings.

    That’s what I was thinking, too, Ashen! No way a gal could be down in the dumps with these cuties dangling from her earlobes! 8)
