The Earjeans 365 Collection: #337

As a kid, I would listen to music and determine if I liked the song based on how it made me feel. Some of my favorite people to listen to were Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, Yolanda Adams, Brandy, Boyz II Men, Aaron Hall, Whitney Houston, and many more. I will admit, very humbly, that I just didn't understand Prince. Now I'm talking as a kid, I didn't get him. But I loved the song 1999 (that's the year I graduated High school :) As an adult, I revisited his music because, well he's an amazing musician, songwriter, performer, and all that other good stuff. Plus, all my music friends gave me dirty looks when I would explain what I've just confessed to you, and I was tired of getting "the look", ha!! I am happy to announce that I "get it" now and I'm a fan for life :)

I dedicate these earrings to Prince fans around the world.

#337 Purple Rain Earrings

Our materials:

purple leather
seed beads
plastic ball beads

I wanted to make these kind of long because rain drops travel a long way before they touch the ground. Adding the beads gives the leather a little extra flavor and contrast. Purple is the perfect color to round out the summer and usher in beautiful fall.

So after 15 minutes of creating, this is what I made...

And there you have it!

Happy Tuesday :)
