Look what Lynn made!

Yesterday Lynn sent me photos of these earings she made using some little green porcelain charms I sent her while ago. She paired them with verdigris keys from Patina Queen and her antiqued brass ear wires that are integrated into the design of the earings and strung with beads. Doesn't this all work well together? This is fun pair of eaings that you can find over in her Lynn Davis etsy shop. Oh and there is a whole raft of pewter and glass beauties that have my mouth watering.


It's always a treat to see what people make from the things I make. These earings are no exception. In fact this is an extra special treat. Lynn, like me, makes a lot of components that other's use. It's hard to find time to make jewelry when your focus is elsewhere. As Lynn herself said, it is quite a lot of fun when you do get make jewelry. So it's pretty special to me to see some of my parts in her earings!


Also, be sure to check out ExpeditionD! I was just over there poking around to see what's new. In addition to all her other wonderful things, there are some fine silver coins and charms that really nice.


Now I'm off to pack. We're leaving for that long 16 hour trip home to our families tomorrow. We'll be stopping to see our daughter in Wichita for the night. Miss Wiggle Bottom and Bob are getting baths right now. They are very excited about the trip. Not so much about the baths.


I'll be checking in on all of you from time to time. Even my 85 year old mother has internet. Although I think she uses the computer mostly for playing solitaire. Says it keeps her mind sharp. Might be something to that.


Have a great week everyone!
