Which, Of Course, Means A Whale's Vagina

Making things is a passion of mine, but it is really difficult to keep up while traveling. For the next two weeks I will be in Miami, Florida (there will be a lot of pictures) and it makes me sad that this may be the only look-at-the-thing-I-made post for a while.

Before leaving Texarkana I completed a great pair of turquoise and wood earrings for my sister-in-law, Nicole. The plan was originally to make a second pair just like them for myself except gold with the wood, but I am rethinking that after spending about 3 hours on this one pair. I will probably end up making a completely different looking pair for myself though.

I have 2 sets of earrings to share with you today, both of which are derived from Pinterest inspirations. Actually, I really just set out to copy these more expensive earrings.

Set 1:

SALE - Neon Aztec - Faux Leather Feather Earrings - Electric Pink / or Blue -  FREE SHIP
The inspiration . . . 

Set 2:

hmmm. i could make these :)
The inspiration . . . 

I really love the way both of these turned out. I got a lot of compliments on my feather earrings and Nicole seemed to love her's. Copying others designs is not really what I like to do but I also really liked these earrings and wanted them, so took the less expensive route of making them myself. Is there anything you do yourself that helps you cut fashion costs?
