Body Memories.

It's been a while since I tried making any of these. I could not have told anyone how to do it in a step by step method. Many people believe in "Body Memories." In other words, a part of you remembers how to do things you've done before, but not necessarily on a conscious level. People who knit or crochet experience this. One of the best examples is riding a bike. Once you learn how to keep your balance and go, you just do it. If you're not convinced of this, try putting your shoes and socks on in a different order than you usually do. It's very awkward!

This pair of earrings is made from teal, plum, and pink seed beads, and pink bugle beads. The hooks are surgical steel and they can be purchased in my Etsy shop, Jill's Treasure Chest.

isn't it strange when you remember something you didn't know was there?
I recently bought a CD at Starbucks and some very dusty cobwebs cleared as I knew the words to songs that I didn't remember.
Your earrings are awesome. Are you going to make more?

Jill said...

Yes, I will be making more of them. Thank you, Susan.
