This earring lost it's partner years ago and has been hanging on my felt earring hanger for a long time. Finally I decided to embrace the concept that symmetricallity is the antithesis of style and wear a braid on one side and the fabulous earring on the other. I've been meaning to make some mismatched earrings anyway. So this seemed like a good place to start. If you have beautiful things stashed in boxed, drawers and closets get them out and enjoy them. An artist I know just died suddenly at 35. Lesson learned. Don't wait for the perfect opportunity. Enjoy life now.
