I was packing for a trip i took last week. I really wanted some earrings to wear with a funky outfit i'd devised.
I'd kept a recent purchase next to the bed...antiqued copper bead caps that looked like the tops of acorns.
With the single cap on top of a very pretty brown nut-like bead, striped with faint darker brown - i dangled a clear crystal & a dark mocha brown pearl, and voilà, i'm ready to go...Note: still had some packing to do!
Happy beading!

    Thanks to Cindy & my button swap partner, Jenna. I had real fun, creating something from the wonderful handmade buttons you made for me to use.
