REVEAL DAY: Mismatched Earrings Swap!

It's reveal day for the MISMATCHED EARRINGS SWAP hosted by Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio. 

THIS one WAS fun!
I was so-o-o lucky and got matched up to swap with our hostess, the Royal Nerdness herself,  Diana Ptaszynski!

In addition to being a really zany chick, she is a real sweetie and just happens to be a fab ceramic artist! I love her glazed goodies :) And guess what? The earrings she sent me are dripping with them!

Although she has lots of goodies in her repertoire, my favorites are her pieces made with the copper patina glaze! Teal-y greenish with a hint of rusty-brown!
Yum, yum, yummy!






BUT the swap story doesn't end there....

NOW MY turn.


When I contacted Diana to find out some things she liked or didn't like she told me "I'm open to anything! " ..oooh you sure? I can get pretty crazy when I am let loose?! "YUP" ,she said!

In our many convo's Diana had told me about her love of all things nerdy, dorky and just plain quirky! She also had been talking about how much she was looking forward to attending FaerieCon next month where she would be attending the bad faeries ball dressed as Medusa!  (WTHeck?!!)

So I took her lead and began researching this whole faerie thingy.  And then the Medusa thing...

Want to see what I came up with? I just bet YOU DO!  :)
You have to travel to New Jersey to see them -  But I promise you they ARE mismatched and something ONLY a self-proclaimed weirdo would wear...Diana says she likes them - I REST MY CASE!  :)
