The pretty spiral lampwork beads were made by my friend and fellow Bead Fest vendor, Lara Lutrick. They were a perfect with my ceramic spiral discs. I also added wire spirals to continue spiral theme.
When I was thinking of naming these earrings, I was looking for a word that starts with "sp" to pair with the word "spiral". All I could think of was Spectacular Spirals. That seemed like overstating the case a bit. On the other hand, Special Spirals seemed really lame. So I Goggled "words that start with sp".
That Googled list made my husband and I laugh, as we started combining the "sp" words with "spirals". How about these pairings:
Spineless Spirals, Spittle Spirals, Spelunking Spirals, Splattered Spirals or Spaetzle Spirals. Now, while I love spaetzle (a type of German dumpling), its really an ugly name for earrings. Just picture it as earrings!!!
While we were going through this list, my husband all of a sudden came up with Spiffy Spirals. Perfect. Lighthearted, fun, not icky! Ta-da!
If you'd like to see more of the Spiffy Spiral Earrings and many other earrings, you should join the Facebook group, The Earring Show. The group is not associated with Earrings Everyday, but our interests are definitely aligned. Its a marketplace on Facebook for both finished earrings and earring components. I'll be having a finished earring show on Friday from 1:00 pm PST (4:00 pm EST, 9:00 pm. BST) to Saturday at 1:00 pm PST (4:00 pm EST, 9:00 pm. BST). The group showcases fabulous earrings and components for sale from a diverse array of artists. Very inspiring...and tempting!
Hope to see you there!
