Earring Challenge Day 25

So today most of my morning was spent driving to Clayton NC. Because I am the Merchants Association President we have to go to the NC Main Street Confrence. Since I knew that I would be driving most of the morning I went ahead yesterday and made my earrings for todays challenge. I love to look at foreign beading books. I don't understand a word they say but I am great with diagrams. These earrings are from one of those books. I can't say that I like these earrings but it was fun to be able to try a new pattern.

I was looking foward to my trip to Clayton for one main go bead shopping! There is a great bead shop in Raleigh called Ornamentea that I have been wanting to go to for a long time but have just never gotten the oppertunity. Sammy and I found it without problem and lets just say that I added to my bead stash.....

One of the first things I found were these great memory wire hoops that you can make into earrings. I don't have anything green and I am wearing a green sweater tomorrow so I decided to get me some Olivine Crystals and Lime crystals to make a quick pair of earrings to wear tomorrow.

I don't normally buy earrings, since I can make them, but I found these and I thought that they were so cute! I am getting spring fever and I thought these would be great and would go with a lot of my new wardrobe.

I always have and always will be a sucker for seed beads! I found these colors and even though I'm pretty sure that I have one of them I decided to go ahead and get them just in case. Besides I needed some so that I could work up my earrings tonight.

Kelly, why three of the picture frames are showing the warning sign instead of the pictures? Is something wrong on my side or it's the same for everybody?
