Earrings~Heliador and Copper...yum!



My babies...my first pair of earrings I've made since April 2009. Created patiently, bit by bit, 5 minutes here and there, carefully in order to protect my wrists. I love them!
They sat at home for a while, as I enjoyed the fruits of creativity, the first in so very long. And today they went to Studio 41 Gallery in Benicia. Lovely day~~

My wrists are so-slowly improving. The pain flared up for a while, but now seems to be subsiding---knock on my wooden head! :-D And now I must be patient and do my best to rest them to allow them to heal completely. I'm not very patient. Really. My physical therapist Linda theorized that patience is the lesson I'm to learn from this experience...rats! C'mon, God, why can't You just assign a book on Patience and give me a multiple-choice quiz? lol!

So may you have a blessed rest of your week, all my blog friends. And pray for me to gain patience! Thank you so much! Also, keep praying for our world, especially the people of Haiti. I have such trivial things to complain about when compared to their tragedy. May God and His people give them comfort and aid. Amen~

Chris, I'm so glad to see that you're back making your jewelry.
I'd like to give you some of my patience, but alas, I have none. So I will pray that the Lord will send you some.
The earrings you made are beautiful. You haven't lost your touch.

Hugs,
Carolyn

Such pretty earrings! I do love copper and stamping - what a great combination. I rarely make earrings either...but you seem to have a magic touch.
