Bird Is The Word

About this design:

I don't have things organized enough yet, and I am still resting quite a bit to heal my shoulder, but I want to get back to doing things. These are just simple earrings. I've had that stupid song in my head all day and have been singing it to Noodle. So I came upon these peacocks that I have had forever. I don't know what to do with them, at least nothing all that creative. But today, apparently, the bird is the word, LOL. So why not just make a couple pair of simple earrings.


White and purple rondells. Bead caps. Ear hooks. Head pins. Peacock findings.

    Simple is good especially if you are dealing with a sore shoulder and a lack of creative ideas. The white and purple ear rings remind me of a Victorian design that has been simplified. Is that even possible?
    I think the peacocks pair would look quite exotic with a paisley print… a blouse or shirt or dress or sari. Peacocks and paisley what more could you ask for?

    I love both pair K! It’s hard to be creative when you’re hurting. Sometimes my hands hurt( I would love to get a pair of those heated gloves to wear at night. ). I bet noodle enjoys your singing! Anyhoo… you’ve always given us elegant pieces to enjoy and these are lovely!

    Great sets KR. The white rondelles look like lanterns. And the peacocks are so much fun. Lovely designs. Heal up and keep singing to Ms Soup!

    Great earrings! The white rondelle pair looks like lanterns with the way the light hits them and reflects back.

    The fact that you are creating despite your injured shoulder, says a lot. I think simplicity is wonderful–not everything needs to be complex or elaborate. (Yes, a truth I keep reminding myself) The first pair looks like a timeless, classic design that will endure the changes in fashion through the years–gotta love that. Of course, I love the colorful birds! I’m sure little Miss Noodle is enjoying your singing and being at your side. It’s nice to see you creating despite all that’s recently happened.

    Beautiful! You always make the prettiest earrings. I’m getting more and more into “simple” designs. It’s sometimes more challenging to make a simple design effective. I’m so glad you sing to Miss Noodle and create beautiful jewelry.
