Costume Jewelry

When I was little, my mom would let me pick out her jewelry when she and my dad went out dancing. I always always always *wanted* to pick these:

but I would often pick other things because I knew she thought these were a bit too flashy to wear every time and I knew she liked her other things too.
Now that I’m all grown up I can see that the other things are fine, in an elegant understated way, but these are still my favorite.

The earrings are clip-on and unfortunately too painful to wear and I don’t dare alter them. I love beads, but beading is not my thing.
I have attempted to make a matching pair of earrings a couple of times before and never been happy with the results, but I like my latest attempt (new pair below the old pair):

I plan to wear these for a special occasion this weekend along with something my mother would never wear:

    You know that I already love the earrings you made…your nails look AWESOME!! Please don’t let them chip…or else the same fate will befall on you if you wear wrist warmers with a short-sleeved shirt.

    Ooh, love that hat!! Where did you get it? I’m sure you told me in the last couple of weeks, but that haze I was in… Did you end up wearing the clip-ons? Some of the gals in my fibers class were heading to the fire sale. I love that black current. What are you going to do with that? Is that one of G’s hats?
