Fidgety earrings

The one-hole bead on each fine silver earring is suspended from a wire with a balled end. The two sides of the beads have different textures. Because of the pivot action on the wire, the beads on these earrings move around a lot as you wear them. Fun to play with when you wear them, but even if you don’t touch them, they like to fidget on their own!

They’re in the mail right now on their way to Red Dot Gallery on Deer Isle. Opening for the season on Friday, May 18.

  1. Your new photo setup looks very successful. And I like the green with the silver. I’ll have to try some colors. I really need one additional light. I have hot spots.

    And I really like your fidgety earrings

      Thanks Roberta. I really appreciate your input on the colors etc. I think the colored backgrounds work well with the all silver pieces. But some colors work better than others. I’ll be learning this as I go…

      When my boys were in high school and I sat through long track meets with another friend/mother, we decided that fidgeting was officially a form of exercise! We used to look at each other and say, “me fidget me fat off!”
      ha ha.
      I miss you. I’ll be right over for a cup of tea and some translucent polymer clay plans….
