Talismans and Hope

Because today has been a strange and unusually discouraging day, it probably accounts for why this little piece insisted it be named Hope. I finished it too late to take any good pictures, and since I'm going outstation to help my boss teach tomorrow, this will have to do for now until Friday:

I've been toying all afternoon with the idea of Talisman Earrings like this - little word-or-text charms incorporated that encourage or at least give food for thought. I think...well, what do you think? (I'm an English graduate, among other things. The written word is as voluptuous as chocolate to me, so my opinions are necessarily biased.)

Whee! Maybe this is a sign that my creativity is finding its way back.

Shuku, I like this earring especially the wrapping at the top.
Keep it up.

Mei, thanks! Yeah, I was having a lot of fun with the wrapping and putting all the clear teardrop beads and vintage blue seed beads on. I think I'm sort of addicted to them now, I always gravitate back to them one way or another.
