The only one......

I only ever made one of these earrings, its partner was never crafted, due to the fact that I'd become a new mother and well I'm guessing baby became more active, so I only got round to making the one.  I used to wear a lot of Peruvian fair trade earrings, that had been bought in the little church shop, I think it was, in front of Edinburgh Castle, so I'd say that was where I got my inspiration from.

Well it's been nearly 20 years since I made this earring and its nice to still have it.  If I remember rightly the chips and beads are Cape Amethyst, bought in Covent Garden and the wire is sterling silver.
