All Earrings, Some Mini...

OK. It's an earring... Not really a mini, but Tessie thought so. 

I brought home some findings from Witches that Barb shared with us.

Tessie found an unmatched earring and immediately thought "fancy belt". 

I told her that it was too thick for a belt. 

She went to look at the pile some more.
Meanwhile, I tried on an earring that I bought at Walmart this morning. They have started making earrings with separate parts for the front and the back of the ear.

From this idea, I am going to try making some.  Just for fun.
 I went to hunt for the wire cutters and Tessie found another earring belt.  I think that she is on to something, but... I have a feeling that I am going to be missing some hoop earrings soon...

At least this one doesn't look like she is wearing armor. Not quite anyway...
Here's a better photo to show you how the earrings are made.  This is just a first try to see if it works. 

It does. The earring goes on the regular way.  Then you slide the hanging part on the post behind your ear, before you put the back on...

The earring doesn't match the bauble on the back, but I can fix that.

I am going back to work now and see what I can do.

Tessie is in my regular boxes of findings now.  She's trying to find more belts.  I have to go drag her out before she hurts herself... To many sharp edges on those things.

See you tomorrow.
