I’ve got a bit of a dilemma, so I’m turning to my online friends for help.
Most of you are aware that next month I’m going to my son’s university commencement.
You’re also aware that for months now, I’ve been
trying to determine agonizing over just what I’m going to wear for this momentous occasion.
(Not that anybody will be looking at me. Or rather, they shouldn’t!)
Anyway, now that I’ve selected a few outfits — mostly in the black-and-white color scheme — I’m debating over accessories.
We had a LOT of thunderstorms recently, giving me many opportunities for my favorite pastime, beading jewelry.
I made the following two pairs of earrings, with an eye toward wearing them for Commencement.
The question is, Which do you like better?
And remember, I don’t want to embarrass my kid. Or stick out. But frankly, it isn’t me to wear a subdued pair of pearl studs and call it a day!
1) This pair of dangling earrings measures 3 1/4 inches in length. Each contains four 6 mm round black jasper beads, a round mother-of-pearl, silver rondelle spacer, and an ornate silver connector. A leverback ear wire completes the look. (Black jasper is said to absorb negative energy, if that helps with your decision!)
2) This pair of chandelier earrings measures 3 1/2 inches in length. Each contains five 6 mm round obsidian beads, three 6 mm faceted round crystal beads, a daisy spacer, and an ornate silver chandelier. A leverback ear wire ties it all together. (Black obsidian is said to cleanse the environment of negativity, disharmony, anger, fear, and resentment.)
Okay, y’all, start voting! If nobody likes either pair, well, I guess we’ll have more bad weather somewhere along the line, and I can go back to the
drawing beading board!
And thanks in advance for helping me out.
