As I write this, on the day before Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., I'd like to share a new pair of earrings with you but also take a minute to thank all the many wonderful and varied artists who've made the beautiful

beads, charms, and other elements I've been privileged to turn into handmade jewelry over the years.  Just as I was drawn to the beauty they created, I hope I've been able to create some beauty in return.  

These new earrings are clearly a study in blue!  Lampwork artist Beth Mellor of Beeboo made all three sets of beads, in three shades of blue.  I love the beautiful streaky hollow beads that I recently bought from her, and the little heishi-like beads in a slightly darker shade.  I added to the stack of blues another gorgeous pair of Beth's rondelles that I'd had for a while, smaller, in a rich darker blue.    

I had a blast painting artist Kelly Luttrell's beautiful rustic pewter charms several different shades of blue, and then I wrapped everything together with lightly oxidized sterling silver wire and hung them from matching ear wires. 

One more thing.  I'm also grateful to everyone at Earrings Everyday for the friendship and the welcome I've always felt here.

I'll see you all next month!  💗
