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.

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.
