Earring Week - Day 2 - It's in the Stars

With a little silver plate wire, some loops and some scroll designs, these bright red, plastic star beads are given a higher purpose.

The second post during my "Week of Earrings", I think that these illustrate my point that you don't need expensive materials to make fun, artistic jewelry.

I read an artists bio once that said he would rather have the value of the piece of art come from his work and not the materials used to create the art.

I agree...the value comes from the human component not the fancy supplies.

Pamela, these are lovely---and a perfect example of making lovely earrings without expensive components! I love the wire spirals---they really make these stars pop! Teri Twitter: Teri_B
