But I was thinking of blogland and DIY projects today because I wore a pair of earrings I whipped up last month. I wanted to share because none of the friends I have made here seem to care about DIY. However, I am headed to a Hungarian Folkcraft Festival this weekend and am hoping to find some inspiration and like minded people.
What inspired the earrings I wore today? Well, I was flipping through some hand-me-down Martha Stewart Living Magazines and spotted this photo of a DIY necklace with shell pink, pale lime green, silver and highlighter-orange beads:
I loved the colour palette, but not the project, so I made a pair of earrings in the same colours. I really like the combination of pale pink with citrus-y hues. I used the same technique I outlined here (for making more simple earrings), and attached the straight pins to a short length of chain for a more dangly effect.
