a little bright and shiny

While I'm still editing the wedding jewelry photos I'd intended to share last month, here's a little splash of color to welcome summer.

 I'm working on getting these glass button earrings ⤵   ready to be a happy little wholesale item. (sold in galleries)

 They look so simple but a lot goes into getting one little product ready for the world. Days and sometimes years of trial and error, research and development go into the making each little piece of jewelry, whether it's a simple earring or a complicated necklace.  These are getting close to finalization...just a few adjustments such as streamlining colors, sizes, metal etc. and they'll be 'done' and I can move onto the next project.

One of the many fun parts of working with glass is choosing colors. Here's a sample from one of the manufacturers, many of which are small companies hand pulling the color rods.  Too many choices = paralyzing.  Then throw in the names like Elphaba, Slytherin, Grumpy Bear, Heffalump and I want them all!
