Let the Gypsy in You Come Out and Play

Made these this week.   I started them earlier in the week and was having a real challenge getting my dangles to come out the right length in relation to each other.  I wanted to hammer my own headpins and put the spade on the end -- hey that's harder than it looks.

Anyway, I tried again this morning, and they just came together first try.  Go figure.

I added another pair of Cheryl Harris' lampwork beads and voila!  Let me say something about her lampwork.  What I really, really love about it is that she makes smaller beads - I have way too many beads that are so large I will probably never use them - they are beautiful handmade beads, but for me, they are just too large.  Cheryl makes a smaller bead which I love.  Go Cheryl!

I love these connectors.  They are either brass or copper, I can't tell which, that had a thin silver plating applied.  I removed most, but not all, of the silver on purpose and they look really cool.
