This pair of earrings was a late birthday present for my beautiful sister-of-the-heart Linda. (Coordinating necklace to come!) They enhance the blue of her eyes.
I just love these rectangular bead caps I bought from Via Murano. I think they go very well with the Kazuri beads (which I also love). I only bought four of them, and now I'm kicking myself. I'll just have to be sure to get in on the next Via Murano buy! Or does anyone know another source where I can find them at a decent price?
I've always been fascinated with color and texture, but my interest in creating jewelry started when I noticed an ad for an arts-and-crafts shop opening in a local mall. I had lost one each of a couple of pairs of my favorite earrings and decided to try my hand at making my own. I bought some hoops and a few beads, put them together and had some left over... bought a few more to go with them... picked up a pair of pliers, some earring hooks, a little of this, a little of that...
And the rest, as they say, is history.
I'm a Carolina country girl transplanted to the Ile de France - a resident tourist, an amateur photographer, and a teacher for a very large international language-teaching company. We provide English lessons to French businessmen (and women) who need it to compete in this global economy.
Visiting France was a lifelong dream, but I never imagined I'd live here one day. Now I'm living in a Wrinkle-in-the-Outskirts of Paris with my husband and soulmate DiGi - about eleven miles from the center of the city.
