The Earjeans 365 Collection: #266

Today's jewelry inspiration is dedicated to music lover's and all things 1990's. One of my favorite things to do was listen to the radio and record my favorite songs directly to cassette tape. The challenge was to stop the tape before the DJ would come back on again. It was really easy to have several tapes and not know what songs were on which tape. Since then music has evolved dramatically. Here's to remembering "the good ol' days"

Earrings #266 are called "The Mix Tape"

Our materials:
black, white, and silver glitter fabric paint

Design time for these is about 4 1/2 hours including the drying time. I hand painted the design on both sides. They are a lot lighter than they look.

And here they are

The Earjeans 365 Collection: #270

(My favorite group from The Sing Off, Afro Blue)

Our jewelry piece is dedicated to any person who has a dream and wants to pursue it but may not quite know how. I was inspired to create this bracelet as a constant reminder that we must follow our dreams in full confidence that they will become reality if we simply refuse to give up. I truly believe that one should do work they love and love the work they do. To accept anything less than that is settling for less than what we deserve.

Jewelry piece #270 "Follow your Dream"

Our materials:
pink rose quartz beads
stretch jewelry cord
crimp cover

Design time for this lovely piece is 20 minutes. I treated the jewelry charm with a single coat of clear nail polish for an extra shine.

And here's our new bracelet

Happy Saturday!

The Earjeans 365 Collection: #272

Today's jewelry inspiration comes from a phone call from one of my close friends. She asked if I could make a few pieces in honor of National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and I was more than happy to do so.

When I began to do a search on more information about this disease, I learned that actor, Patrick Swayze, died from this several years ago.

There are several websites you can visit to learn more about this disease, prevention, treatment, and ways you can help find a cure. You can begin your search by clicking here

#272 Purple Passion necklace

our materials for today are:

purple glass beads

Let's be good to our bodies and each other. Get active, eat healthy, and help others do the same.

Have a great day,
