Hanging In There

About this design:

Playing with a little wire after viewing some of the designs I can't remember who posted this style of wire wrap first, so whoever did, thank you! :)

    Lovin’ all you latest postings, Val!
    These are colorful and yet earthy too!

    Love your photography as well. Maybe you could give us some pointers and advice? :-) I could sure use a refresher course.

    LOL…I actually read Lynda’s (from Fresh Baked) suggestions about photography. You can find it under her designs. Thank you for the compliments. :)

    These photos do show off the craftsmanship and beauty of the earrings well…the goal of every jewelry maker. Glad the tips helped out. I’m very sad that my favorite photo editing site, Picnik, closes in two days. But there are a couple of others that have been recommended to try. PicMonkey and Pixlr.
    I’ll be giving them a try very soon.

    Let us know how the new sites work Lynda. My printer came with software that does an auto-adjust but I would love to play with other programs.

    What a beautiful design! Beautiful wire work. It inspires me to go beyond the “advanced beginer” stage…LOL ;) The beads look like Robin’s eggs.So pretty!

    Thanks Nancy. I have you tell you why I named these “Hanging in there” When my son was in the hospital just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes friends would ask “How are you all doing?” My response was always “hanging in there” The way the bead sits supported by the wire is so much the way I felt- supported by friends and family almost wrapped in a hug. :)
