These are earrings I made for my youngest sister - the one I call "the arty one" on this blog; she loves dangly earrings and the colour green! I made these for her last year, but I didn't take any photos of them at the time so today I took the opportunity to take some photos for this blog.
Until today it was hot and sunny, but today we're suddenly in a rain-soaked world: lush green trees rising out of the mist, with the sea all around (ocean. I must remember to call it the ocean). We also went to the swimming-pool today so we all smell faintly of chlorine. Chlorine was named by Sir Humphrey Davy from the Greek word χλωρος (chlōros), meaning yellow-green. So these earrings, all in all, seem to reflect the day quite well.
My sister suggested that I could go outside and take some pictures on the patio under the shelter of the balcony. Excitingly, I got to use her amazing camera complete with tripod. I felt very professional, even if I did have to stand the tripod on a super-size box of baby-wipes in order to get it up to the level I needed.
