(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 #263 - Smokey Quartz Earrings
In a strange fit of impulse-buying (remember that catalog mega-sale I mentioned?) I picked up a few faceted stones with my last gem order. Though they are not normally my thing, I think they may be growing on me. Take these smokey quartz for example - they have a strange, irregular cut that reminds me of handmade Art Deco era jewelry. The coolest thing about these stones? No two on the strand are alike!
