Here are my lovely earrings for day 24!
Hmmm... What? You say you've seen these already? Back on day 21? Surely you must be mistaken.
Ok, you aren't mistaken. And I will stop calling you Shirley.
*sigh* So, last night I decided to try something I had been avoiding for a while. Turns out I was avoiding it for a reason. Most beaders find that one of their early projects is a pair of earrings. Specifically, a brick stitched triangle with a bunch of fringe hanging down. I hate these earrings. They do not fit my personal aesthetic, which tends toward simpler lines. I am not a fringe person (though Fringe the TV show is awesome!).
But, it's late in the month and earring ideas are running low, so....
Turns out that I hate this style so much that I couldn't even make myself finish ONE! What you see here is the result of 2 hours of taking it apart and redoing it, trying to get the fringe to NOT BE FRINGE! Yeah, that didn't work. So I went and looked at Cake Wrecks instead. (there are some very disturbed bakers out there... cakes made to look like realistic newborns are WRONG!)
So, since I made 3 pair of earrings on the 21st, I am claiming one pair for today.
And we're moving on.
