Independence Day and Bling-Bling Earrings

photo (1)

I hope everyone had an exciting yet safe holiday weekend.  Matt and I enjoyed our Independence Day in San Francisco where we met up with one of my dearest friends and her boyfriend.  We explored traditional San Fran sites such as Fisherman’s Wharf, Coit Tower, Chinatown, and Ghirardelli Square.  However, the highlight of July 4th was our firework watching location.  We used airbnb to reserve an apartment for the night.  Lucky for us, we had access to the rooftop!  We joined the San Fran locals and had the pleasure of observing four firework shows.  It was spectacular and I hope to return again.

The next day was spent at the Exploratorium.  It’s a combination of the St. Louis Science Center and City Museum.  Matt and I wandered around playing with all the gizmos and gadgets.  After several hours of meandering about the pier we found ourselves at the Exploratoruim museum store.  While there I purchased a nifty colorful orb puzzle.  Now the reason I am divulging this mediocre detail is because the clerk showed high interest in the earrings I was wearing.  As a result I was inspired to make some more.

Bling-Bling earrings are one of my favorite earrings to wear on both everyday and special occasions.  I made these with some extra beads from a bracelet I’ve been working on for a while (Shhh…  I’ll show and tell that piece on another day).  These earrings were created with 4mm swarovski crystals.  Sparkly! Also a tad difficult to photograph.

I plan on making more of these since I tend to get compliments and questions when I wear them.  Keep an eye on etsy since I plan on adding some earrings to my shop soon.  Now it’s time to read some research articles and learn some more German.  auf Wiedersehen!
