A friend recently asked me to make earrings for her college friends for an upcoming mini reunion. As it happens, I went to the same college and graduated 4 years before them so there was no overlap. However, I knew the college colors well: affectionately known as mud and blood (brown and maroon). Here are the earrings I created for the women.

A good friend of mine gave me some vintage typewriter keys in the fall. It has taken a while for me to find the time to play with them and have them whisper designs to me. I put them on my bench and with a bunch of other materials for lots of visual stimuli. I cut some copper pieces out and made prongs to capture the keys, Yes, there is a spring in the picture along with brass pieces and steel jump rings
I added some brass square tubing, antiques brass chain, vintage tin from a baking pan, Monopoly pieces and a stone with a natural hole through it and these are the results:
