I can only offer that king of flimsy excuses: “It seemed like a good idea at the time.”
Piled next to each other on the white cloth I used for beading, they didn’t look overwhelming at all. More like the various shades of Easter basket plastic grass; which is pretty, if bright. Even my test string of “put the colors next to each other” looked fine.
Massed color, though….
Um. Well. Everyone else in the household thinks they look lovely. “Party party!” is the comment I get.
Frankly, I’d be tempted to title them “Bank Robbery Earrings”, because I suspect if you wore these the witnesses wouldn’t report anything else. Eye color? Hair color? Sex? Sorry, Officer, there were these earrings….
(Weary but Bemused Officer: “Note, suspect has ears.”)
Aaaanyway. The next pair is going to be much tamer. Honest.
