Simply charming...

The short version: I bought some charms and made simple, earrings with them.

The long version:
  I enjoy shopping for unique pieces to use in my jewelry.
Combining pretty charms, colourful glass, or precious stones, into a pair of earrings, is almost instant gratification.

 The other day, I received a new order of charms, and was anxious to go to my studio and make some new earrings. However, my son was on Skype, and we were having such a good visit, so I opened the packages, and we just kept talking.

    I have a couple of tools in my desk, so I made several pairs of earrings while we visited. 

They're simple, lovely, and Inexpensive.

Clay pieces often take weeks from start to finish. 
Paintings also take many hours to be completed.
Earrings are one of the few things I can make from beginning
to end, in one sitting AND they are easy to ship.

But, just adding a charm to an ear wire? Anyone can do that… if they want to.
Makes me reluctant to call them "handmade", however, not everyone is willing or has the patience,
to fiddle with tiny things. 

A simple charm hanging from a hook.
Easy to make, and yet so pretty to wear.

It'll take time for me to get them all listed in my Etsy Shop, but I did
