Lasts Night Boro class, and the inspiration...

First off, it seems I made a wee bit of a mistake with my earrings last night. Funny thing was, I had a few inspirations ready to go up, but of course being the major procrastinator that I am. I waited to the last minute to actually photograph them. I wasn't originally planning on taking the boro class, so what should have been a few hours to work on them, turned into less than an hour by the time I got home.

Now, these earrings I made a few weeks ago (3 or 4 in fact), and I've looked at them countless times, I photographed them, then looked at them again while in photoshop, and in putting up the pic.

Now, you can probably see where I'm going with this. I get an email from Dwyn this morning:

Subject: Inquiring minds....
want to know ...
why there are two different bead caps used in the project?

Sigh - It seems i'm going blind - I either need way better lighting in my studio, or it's time for another eye exam. Being a beader, it's probably a bit of both. :-)
I'll get those earrings fixed up later tonight!
What's even most interesting, is that Dwyn was the only one who mentioned it...Did anyone else notice? - cuz, I know you guys aren't the shy type to not point out our mistakes!

Anywhoo....I had a blast during keiths class last night. Next week is the pendant workshop, which I've signed up for as well. Keith is AWESOME. I made a whole whack of really cool icicles last night - and I have dreams of making heaps of them for my Christmas tree this year. Malliga took the class, and has never worked with boro at all - She was whipping out off mandrel icicles like crazy.
