Earring Swap Reveal

Hello everyone!

First, huge kudos out to Jessica Murray who hosted this blog hop.  She's put up with all of quite admirably.  Check out her blog, Whimsical Monkey, here.

I've been a bit remiss in my posting lately.  I blame a lack of time to do things  :)  Rather, I've prioritized some items and crafting has taken a bit of a backseat.  HOWEVER, I have the privilege of participating in a fun new blog hop for earrings! 

My partner, Kashmira Patel, is a software engineer who creates jewelry to support her charity.  She has a huge heart!  I always love seeing people who put their talents to fabulous use like she is.  Plus, she has the added benefit of enjoying one of my favorite things - travel!  I wish I've been to as many places as she has.  :)

The rules were this --
1. Create some earrings
2. Swap with a partner
3. POST on the reveal date (today!)

Kashmira and I chatted and I'm afraid I gave her no real direction other than "I love earrings!"  Well, I take that back.  I asked that she not use fiber because the humidity kills it here and nothing too heavy.  She did an absolutely awesome job!

Here is what she came up with:

Didn't she do a fabulous job??  I love them and have had several people complement my nice pretty earrings. 

Here I am wearing them:  They fit my face perfectly.  The length is fabulous :)

Here is my partner: Kashmira Patel.  Check out what I sent her.  :) 

I didn't take pictures before I sent them over so I stole the pictures from her website.  She did a fabulous job taking pictures of them.  :)
So in the next few days, visit these hard working people and see what they made/swapped.  I'm really looking forward to seeing the different earrings out there.  Happy Hopping!
