Handmade Monday - Treble clef earrings

Hello Handmade Monday - I'm back!  I'm sure you didn't miss me, but I missed you xxx

Well I just about survived last week, but only managed one day of my two day National Trust Craft Fair.  A migraine caught up with me on Saturday evening.  I don't suffer from stress migraines, I suffer from relief migraines!

(Yes I made it on time to every event on time, children suitably dressed (including allowing my son to drop off his sister at the ballet party dressed as lion, just because everyone else was dressed up), attended school plays, sent my cakes to the Christmas fair, and made enough wirework jewellery for the Craflwyn National Trust Christmas Fair, set up my stall on time, looked at my stall thought 'phew' and then the migraine saw its opportunity.)

Craft fairs are funny events, there you sit with all your wares on display and yet it always takes me by suprise when someone asks me 'is it handmade?'.  So I take my pliers and some wire.  It is also quite a liberating time, as I never have enough time and tools to make something from start to finish, so I fiddle, and fiddling with wire can have some interesting results.
Matching treble clef earrings!

On Saturday I set about making a treble clef earrings.  I managed the first treble clef with surprising ease, but it took most of the day before I managed a matching one!  I attached them to their earwires this morning.  Now to upload them to my shop, to match the treble clef necklace.  And then off for a trip round everyone else at HM.


  1. Now see if my son was my daughter these would be perfect! (If you see what I mean!) Mich :)

  2. They look really delicate and pretty. I consider myself lucky that I don't suffer with migraines, my sister does so my sympathies go out to you.

  3. They are lovely and I bet the set looks really good

  4. I actually did miss you! And btw, as a fellow migraine sufferer, I understand, altho my current medication does help. Before I ever had one I thought people with them were just weak. HA! :)
    But, as for the earrings, they are awesome! The reason I don't like to make earrings tho, is that they should match, and that is so hard. Good job. :)

  5. I've also had many a "relief migraine". Funny how the stress seems to keep them at bay.

    Those earrings are fab!

  6. The earrings look great, sorry to hear about the migraines. x

  7. You made me laugh with you 'Are they handmade?' comment. Sorry to hear about your migraine. Treble clefs, great idea
