Sometimes an idea has to wait for its time.

My original idea didn't pan out. I made a mold and cast dozens of these long dagger shapes for a project years ago. A few actually got used, but mostly they sat in a boxDruzy Dagger Earrings - Vickie Hallmark

While working on a new earring design, I wanted some long dangles. Prowling through the boxes of components, what did I find? The daggers, short and long.

Yes, they were curved, but I hammered them straight again. I made the first pair of earrings, with druzies. I proceeded to wear them as a test - would I endanger my neck? All good. I even wore them to pilates, with no damage.

I enjoyed the slight tinkle in my ears for all of 36 hours before they sold.

So I made more, with blue chalcedony and moonstones and rose quartz, with dark patina and brighter patina, with extra stones or not, with single daggers and double. And again, they mostly sold.

I have more ideas.

And I'm still not finished with that box of daggers yet.
