a day of two halves

I’ve had a bit of a mixed day today. This morning, we needed to saw up some logs for our Rayburn, so it was on with the full set of protective clothing, and I set to with the chainsaw. Sorry, but there are no photos of this, as hard hat, goggles, reinforced gloves and protective boots are not my best look!

In total contrast, this afternoon I finished these mistletoe earrings for a customer.

So, it was a move from a chainsaw to a magnifying lamp and tiny pliers, to suspend the pearls from little silver loops. Lucky I’m adaptable!

The earrings are a design that I made and sold last year. The customer saw them on the internet somewhere, and contacted me to ask if I could make a pair for her, which I was obviously happy to do. I’ll be posting these off to their new home tomorrow.

They are the second pair of mistletoe earrings I’ve sold this week. I do have one pair left in my Etsy online shop, together with lots of other new designs, so do pop over and take a look if you’re starting to think about Christmas.

  1. Shocking that you havent got a picture of the fashion forward look but love the earrings and a good reminder to take a browse in your Etsy shop with 4 daughters and Christmas looming 🙂
