Y'see, it started out to be this really cool copper concoction with patina'd heart charms and other stuff and then the charms didn't have loops going the right way so I tried putting them on with jump rings and then they were too dangly and it just wasn't working.
So I got the bright idea to mix some blue flowers, bronze pearls and copper beads and some blue rondelles and I started wire-wrapping away.
Now, it seemed, um, not good, pretty early on, but I thought if I kept wire-wrapping, it would get better. By the time I realized that wasn't going to happen, I'd invested so much time (and so many headpins) that I felt like I had to finish it. Then I thought some dark purple beads would help it...but I couldn't find the strand I wanted to use.
Then I got a look at these rondelles in real daylight (instead of the crappy fluorescents in my office) and lo and behold, they were LAVENDER and NOT BLUE. I'm telling you - in the office, those rondelles were exactly the same color as the flowers on the bracelet. And now look at them.
Okay, the lavender improved the bracelet a bit, but I still don't like it.
Now the earrings I think are not so bad. At least, that's what I thought yesterday when I was photographing them.
Now I'm not sure I like them at all. Although, they do match the flowers in my backyard pretty well LOL!
Or maybe I'm just grumpy because I was forced to wear Spanx today and they are slowly strangling the entire lower half of my body?
Wait, was that TMI?
