Seriously, do you think this would go down well? I was sorting through my little box of silver oddments today, to see what I could place in my brand, spanking new tumbler and make all shiny and luscious again. I came across so many odd silver earrings that I had an idea. You know how it is - a pair of earrings is your favourite until one of them falls out, unnoticed, and lands in the dirt. Or in the taxi. Or on the floor of the bus. A friend of mine managed to run a single earring over with her 4 x 4 the other day! It's not salvageable, I'm afraid.
I made a bracelet such as this just last year for a friend's 40th birthday. This is it - terrible photograph, but it gives the idea.
After going through my own box of orphaned earrings, I realized that most of us girls must have just such a collection. I'm thinking I might offer this service in my Bluetinatoo studio on Artfire. I just have to work out the logistics.
Do you think people would be willing to send me their spare earrings and get them back as a bracelet? It wouldn't be dreadfully expensive. I'd have to charge for the chain, the clasp and my time, hand wrapping the charms provided.
Do let me know what you think!
