Earring Swap, Take II

Okay, so Crazier Sister had one of her crazier-than-normal moments when she tho't the earring swap reveal was back on May 31st and jumped the gun a bit. Don't know WHY I tho't that, but I did.  What can I say? There's a very good reason I chose the name The Crazier Sister (cue manic laughter).  Anyway, toDAY, Thursday June 7th, is the actual reveal date so you're getting a semi-review.  It's okay, tho', because (if you recall from my previous post here) I didn't originally have both sets of earrings.  If you also recall, I mentioned that, knowing Life's sense of humor, I'd receive the 2nd pair that day when I got home from work.

Life laughed in my face. They were waiting when I got home.  I guess I'm either a prophet or the daughter of one! (or Life's sense of humor is even more warped than mine!!)

ANYway, here, once again, are the earrings I received from Amy at Copper Diem and (for the first time) Lisa from Whimsy's Wonders.

Thank you, ladies! I loved them! :)

Amy's are feminine and flirty ~ very dainty
they're a perfect accent for a solid colored outfit

love red and these are just enough red to make me happy :)
they're also light and swingy
yup, lovin' 'em!
A different shade of red from Lisa!
(how did they DO that!?)
Love the asymmetry.
(did you two get together on the color!?!? ~suspicious glare~)

Gorgeous and I've actually got several outfits I can wear
these with (I'm SO not a clothes-horse! Saner Sister despairs of me)
love the wire wrapping job, too. (did you make your own wires?)
(I gotta get out my torch and play pyro!)
Again, thank you, ladies. Not sure how you two managed to both send me red (even if one is a reddish/pinkish/brownish red) but I just so happen to love red. It was my Mimi's favorite color and makes me think of her.

(quick addendum): I forgot to show what I sent each of my ladies so here's a quickie peekie:

The ceramic discs were made by Chinook Jewelry for a
challenge by Michelle Mach and I loved them so much I
went to Chinook and bought a few more. Hope Lisa enjoys them.

I wanted a Moroccan/Middle Eastern slant
on this pair. The orange beads at the bottom
were made by Sue from Sue Beads and I've
been hoarding them for MONTHS!
(rock the Casbah, Amy!)
