(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 #205 - Rose Quartz and Faceted Glass Earrings
Today's trinket was actually a happy accident. My daughter got a new pink dress today and asked if I could make her some earrings to go with it. I picked out the beads, strung the whole thing together, and then realized that I had cut each wire twice the length that I needed. Instead of wasting that silver, I wrapped it down and around the beads, finishing in a swirl around the base of the earring. The result? A fun design that I've never tried before!
