I bought these earrings. Twice.
I ordered them about a month ago. They are gorgeous - the color is so unusual - The seller, MiaBeads, calls it "Silver Shade." They are so sparkly and have just a hint of smokiness to them. They go with absolutely everything.
Well at least I think they do. I wore them twice. At the most.
We were getting ready to leave for my niece's wedding. Rick was driving, I was shotgun and there were three people jammed into the backseat of my Honda. We weren't really going all that far. Just a half a mile down the road to the club house at Pajaro Dunes.
I realized that the earrings that I painstakingly remade to go with my outfit were still up in the rented condo so I made Rick stop the car so I could run up and grab them. When I got back into the car my sister Trish, one of the squished people in the backseat said that she had forgotten earrings altogether.
I took off the pretty pair I was wearing (above) in order to put on my wedding outfit earrings and handed them to her. I told her she could wear them since they matched her outfit so perfectly. Of course they matched. They match everything.
Throughout the reception she kept mentioning how pretty they were and after a few glasses of champagne I GAVE them to her! What was I thinking? Don't drink and give away your stuff people - you'll regret it!
I tried pulling the old "I was drunk" line on her the next day but she wasn't having anything to do with it. I gave them to her fair and square and they were hers now.
I emailed Mia of Mia Beads and she said she had another pair she could sell me.
So I bought them. For the second time. I noticed she has another pair on her Etsy site if anyone wants a pair. Or you could just go to a party with me....
