Having jammed the sewing machine up on a friday evening after a long week at work, I decided it would be easier to sort out with fresh eyes at another time and switched it off.
So feeling creative I decided to take some of my many beads and make myself a few pairs of earrings.
I have sensitive ears and have to wear gold, silver or some hypo-allergenic brands, so I used silver hooks for these earrings. I have dark hair which I often wear down, and a fairly short neck. Having experimented a bit I realised my earrings need to be light or bright (dark ones just don't show at all), neither too small not too large, and about this length - long enough to hang down from the ears, but not so long that my short neck is too obvious.
If I want to wear dark earrings I have to have my hair swept up or clipped back to showcase them.
