I started making earrings right before Mothers day as a surprise for the wife. She loved those first seven pair so much I kept it up til now with a plan. At her family Christmas gettogehter, whoever wants, pulls a number out of a hat. They will take turns picking out a set. After every one is done, we will do it all over again, and again till they are all gone. What you see here is a rack (which I made) of 154 earrings out of 214 sets that I have made so far with no end in site. The other pictures are close ups for clarity.

-- I think, therefore I think I am.

Very nice work. It reminds me of my obsession with end grain cutting boards. How many designs are there? I could not make enough of them

Thank you one and all for your posted comments. I’m being told by family and friends that I should get a booth at the next craft show. Gee, I wonder how many sets I need to have to fill a booth.
