As you know from previous posts I've been making earrings to send to my 96 year old friend in Wisconsin.  So far she's sold about 100 pair of earrings.  I sent her a pair of earrings made with polymer clay.  She had 3 people that wanted to buy them but didn't want the beads on them.  She finally found someone that wanted them with the beads but she called and asked me to make more without the beads.  I made those a year ago and didn't keep any of the clay.  I did two Mokume Ganes to try and replace the original.  One with Premo 18kt gold and gold leafing and one with silver leafing.  They turned out really good.  I hope her customers like them.

I think these are kind of boring without beads but that's what she wanted.

It's 115 here today.  My friend calls it "100 and STUPID".  UV resin sure hardens up fast but 5 minutes out in the sun causes headaches.  I'm still trying to figure out who talked me into moving to Arizona.

Lovely earrings, Bonnie! Mokume Gane is a great cane for designing earrings. Looks great with and without beads/crystals. 100 earrings sold...WOW! I agree with you about the ready for it to be over, but looks like we have about another month for sure of triple digits...ugh! Can't wait for our ready to go up to the pine country!

Lovely! Those ladies are going to be so thrilled with their fancy earrings. I especially like what you have been doing with the gold and silver! So sorry to read about your mega heat. How did the earlier settlers ever manage in the decades before swamp coolers and then air conditioning?????
