(TRIN-KET: noun - a small ornament, piece of jewelry, etc., usually of little value.)
Inspired by the "365: Make Something Every Day" Creativity Challenge, I will make and post a trinket every day for one year beginning January 1, 2011.

Trinket #93 - River Town Cemetery Earrings
I've spent the last few days in lovely Lynchburg, Virginia, a city on the James River about three hours west of Richmond. I had a chance today to really explore some of the historic sections of town and to pay a visit to Old City Cemetery, a burial ground unlike any other I've ever visited. The age span of the grave markers and the variety of stone from which they were made created a surreal history and geology lesson wrapped into one. Their rough textures, weathered inscriptions, and lichen-covered faces were the inspiration for today's trinket.
