It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows Deborah  that she was quite persistent in getting me to make her these earrings.   This woman is a riot, and I love her for it! 

So, she happened to be nearby when I gave Rachel a birthday gift last May, and wanted to know when I'd have some done for her.  
"When's your birthday?"  I asked.

"It's in March, but that too long to wait," She said.

I intended to comply, but my crafty to-do list is long and capricious.  And I lose interest in anything that becomes an assignment, even when it's an assignment I volunteer for.  So despite frequent status checks from Deb ("Diana, where my earrings at?"), it took me until her birthday to get them to her.
It shouldn't have.  This set was quick and easy, made from supplies on hand, and perfectly suited to Deb's style.  I've seen her wear each pair several times since her birthday.  (Although she told me recently that she lost one of each pair.  Maybe by her next birthday I'll get around to replacing them!)

In my usual fashion, I didn't get a chance to take photos before I left home, so I ended up throwing the camera in my diaper bag to take destination shots (in the nursing mother's room at church.  Lovely carpet, isn't it?).  And, of course, the battery ran out after a single click, so this is all I have.  You can see the hooks of the second pair peeking over the back of the card.  As I recall, they're gold with an amber dangle.  Maybe heart shaped?  I don't remember.  (And that's why I take photos!  Ideally.  Maybe next time.)
