Lately I haven't really been in the mood to make much but I did manage to whip up these earrings a week or so ago. The only problem is that I didn't notice until after I'd made them that some of the anodized aluminum rings have white spots on them. This sometimes happens when you get a bad batch. Shame since you really can't see them that much but if I were to sell them then I'd have to mention it and then probably would only sell them for like $1 or something. I love this style since it's very simple but looks good no matter what type of jump rings you use. I have a pair I made when I first started weaving chainmaille that are Argentium silver and I added a Swarovski drop on the bottom.
This photo has nothing to do with anything other than I thought I'd just add it for fun. That is the husband and I at the Coliseum in Rome when we went there in January of 2006. As you can tell it was a bit chilly but the flights were dirt cheap from England and we were living there at the time. EasyJet is similar to Southwest here in the States...cheap and no frills. If I remember right, the flight was like 1GBP and you just pay the taxes which are usually about 15GBP. Even by today's exchange rate that is only about $25 for a return flight. Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
