The boys & I also had the opportunity to go to the carolling on the Mall to watch our family perform with their church. Josh got to ride the Metro for the first time.I've had some free time to make jewelry since we've been here. I was on an earring spree yesterday. Here are 3 pairs I made. I'm still kind of in a pearl mode. This pair is made of glass pearls & pineapple quartz briolettes wrapped with wire. The other 2 pairs are made with Swarovski crystals. The pink pair has an enamel & Swarovski bead on the end & the turquoise pair has cloisonne & a decorative bali headpin.
