Chandelier Earrings

I'm back!!!! Ok clearly it's been way too long since I've blogged. This is due to 1.) me being lazy, 2.) me being so busy, but probably most of all....3.) me being lazy. I'm gonna get back into my blogging groove (though I don't know if I can say that I ever really had one), PROMISE!

So lots of times I'll go online shopping - not to shop, but rather to find things that I could possibly make myself (in my OH SO PLENTIFUL free time). What can I say? I get ambitious sometimes and I'm also not a fan of unloading $60 for a pair of earrings that I could probably craft someway, somehow myself. I was browsing through Anthropologie's website the other day and bumped into these amazing earrings:

I am OBSESSED! I think I'm gonna attempt to recreate these somehow. I mean, I have wire, I have beads and I have pliers...so how hard could it be..? (I hope?) I'll keep you updated on my progress with this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this isn't just another project that I casually let sit at the end of my to-do list.

"If you aren't in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?" - Anonymous

I found this quote very motivating, especially a few weeks back when I was tackling my first set of college finals. It reminds me that being busy and overwhelmed isn't as detestable as we always seem to make it. It's a way for us prove our diligence and show us what we're capable of.
