Through the years I've tied making a more visual, physical reminder of my year. I’ve tried (without success) to document my life in daily photographs. I’ve tried to create every day for a month (although I did create each day, I didn’t really work very much on the project I was attempting to finish) and other daily projects, all without success.
This year I decided to try something different. Instead of daily, I’ll be making something weekly. And instead of it being a huge project that takes a lot of time, I’ll be making earrings. 1 pair per week.
Each week I will make 1 pair of earrings. I’m making them for myself (although if you all love the design, I may put them in my line). I’ll share my earrings each week here on my blog.
Since 2 weeks have passed this year already, I have 2 pairs of earrings to share.
This pair was made with washers, beads made from lava and clear glass beads. I have already worn these earrings quite a bit.
Earrings made from bobbins from a sewing machine. I actually use plastic bobbins with my sewing machine because that's what they came with. I love the metal and have a few sets from a large sewing kit I got at a yard sale. I think they make adorable earrings!
How do you like my new earrings? Have you considered doing something like this for the new year?
