Earrings for the day and Betsey Johnson bags !

Everyone close to me knows that I have been on a Betsey kick for awhile.   Anytime I see a Ross, Marshall's or t.j. Maxx, I am on the prowl for Betsey bags for gifts and even myself.  All the skulls, roses and leopard print are very rock n' roll.  I am getting too old to wear certain things and I have passed on items I wore at the club in the past to a baby cousin.   Brooke's daughter, tori.   Some things I have kept for sentimental value and other things can still be rocked.   Those others just make my aging self look ridiculous.   I may still be relatively thin for my age, but that doesn't give me the right to dress like a teenager.  However, I can still rock crazy handbags!

These were less than 30 dollars at Ross.   The rainbow looking one is a makeup bag, but it can be used as a purse.   I think I am going to get another, but in a different print.   

We are moving into Aquarius season which means my mother's birthday and a few friends birthdays.  One favorite aunt too!  I found an amazing Betsy item for one of my best friends who is finally turning 30.  Which means for one whole year, I can gloat that she and I will be in the same decade!  I need to get to making more things.  My mom and stepmom are born at close dates, January 20th and January 21st.  They both love handmade things and earrings especially, so it's not too hard to create something special for each one of them.  My aunt is creative, but she loves anything you give her. 

Feeling the effects of the new year, I am still in housecleaning mode, so I am still getting rid of things and redecorating.   In addition, I plan to make more time to make more jewelry again and focus on my specialty, earrings.  Thus, today, I worked on two pair using dyed coral beads and onyx. 

I have included some regular cracked crystal beads for the accent on one pair.
