Blog Hop :: Ears to You

Amy over at Copper Diem is such a kind soul, always working on ways to give back. I had the pleasure of meeting Amy in person at Bead Fest this year. She is one crazy lady! (I mean that as a compliment!) So much fun and energy; it was a blast to get to know her.

One of the things she is continually doing is giving earrings to a group called Ears to You. If you don't know who they are ... they tell you they "bring smiles and hope to cancer patients one pair of earrings at a time." It is a way to help women and girls feel more 'normal' and beautiful at a time when they are adjusting to hair loss.

This particular hop is dedicated to young girls who are currently going through treatments. So our challenge was to make earrings that were more youthful and fun. She asked us to create a couple of pairs of earrings. But here's the thing. I have 2 girls, so I'm always playing around with a fun pair of earrings for my girls. And what happens is that they pick some, and not others. So I end up with lots of extra pairs. This stash here was just sitting in a box in my studio. I thought what a great way to get these off to someone who might want them! So you'll see 'girly' pink, crazy Halloween, dainty butterflies and ladybugs, and just sparkly dangles. Don't forget to check out all the other bloggers participating back over on Amy's blog.
