A Few Things for Summer
How did it get to be July?! Perhaps the fact that I was traveling in Canada and California during June made that month fly by. I have been feeling polymer withdrawal, and had to get back into the swing of things. I wanted to make a lei necklace in summer colors, so decided to branch off into a color I don't use very much - orange! I came up with a semi-subdued orange, but it is orange. I also made the ruffled disks go all the way around the necklace. This makes the lei stand out as it circles the neck, perfect for summer months when people are wearing tops without collars.
I was also in the mood to make earrings. I have some sweet little flowers blooming in the yard, so decided to make up some posy earring, shown here in 3 colors.
