My MUSE....where did it go?

When your Muse is missing....go in another direction.
 
I broke my glasses and have to wait for new frames to come in, soooooooooo, since I see quite well with my 10 yr. old glasses in the bifocal area,
I decided to just suck it up and make some earrings.
 
Actually, a lot of things broke in the last couple of weeks, the refrigerator, my glasses, my computer, the speaker on my NEW iPhone, my architect light on my work table...that they don't make any more...and I LOVED it...
 
But, there were no broken bones, and no blood, so all is well.
 
When frustrated, make Jewelry!
 

 
The one pair still need wires, but it was fun to work with some of the beads I'd gotten while on vacation this year.
 
Most of these are from Door County, like the Red Fishes and the Green ones. I also picked up some cool Vintaj bead caps there.
 
The Fish have a rectangle Brass Blank that's been embossed from Vintaj.
 
I enjoy being unconventional by using silver, gold, brass and copper in the same piece.
 
Call me crazy, I just like it.

Sorry to hear about all the breakages but better things you can replace than things you can't! Love the new earrings! My mojo is popping in and out so fast I'm beginning to think it's a jack-in-the box and someone has the handle turning on hyperdrive! Sheesh.

My you have had a rash of breaks. I thought they were only to be in threes. Lovely earrings you have created with your decade old glasses. I think my Muse stayed in France. Creative Bliss...
