SO sorry, blog friends (and mom). My month long study in Hungary has been madness and my computer exploded (I am at the mercy of my roommate, whose laptop did not commit suicide) and that combination has led to too little blogging.
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.
