More Art For Your Lobes

October 22, 2010 at 3:50 pm 117 comments

Maryann, Nan, and Samantha

Peg Howard, master manipulator of images for your ears, has added several more “girls” to her collection of art for your ear lobes. This brings her collection to 31 different designs! Order three or more and save 20%

These  make wonderful gifts for friends and for yourself. We now offer a “cheap ship” option starting at $2.29, depending on where you live and how many earrings you order. Just write “CHEAP SHIP” in the comment section and we’ll adjust your invoice at this end. US residents only.

There are more designs coming shortly, but for now I’m having trouble deciding. Can you help?

Please help me decide! Number 1, 2, and 3 are from my Amish Baskets quilt. Peg has manipulated the baskets and come up with three terrific designs.

Numbers 4, 5, and 6, and from my Whig Rose quilt. I can’t make up my mind these either. I like them all.

What are YOUR favorites? I’d appreciate it if you’d write your favorites in the comment section below. (You can pick more than one.) Just write the numbers of the ones you like the best. Other comments are also welcome.

Get my blog delivered to you via email every time I write one, or read them online.

      Hello Melissa—
      “Peg– how about on point?”—This is a common suggestion I hear, so allow me to explain why I don’t yet do “on point.”
      I have worked through a multitude of options, in the MANY months of development before the public eyes ever viewed them.

      I am an “on point” kind of Gal myself- :) I tried doing the very first ones ALL on point and almost gave up the whole adventure because more of them were in the trash because the hole was “off”–hugely frustrating! Been there, tried it, and almost threw the baby out with the bath water!!

      The fact that they are all hand cut with scissors and the hole punched with a hand-held punch, AND they are only 3/4 of an inch wide, there is NO margin for error when they are set on point. I did try, honestly. VERY hard. But this adventure is meant to be joyful and pleasureable for me too, so I put that thought aside for now and moved on with squared earrings only.

      I havent thrown the on point option out for the future, it will just involve a custom jig and punch press. Someday that will happen, I’m sure. Untill then, I hope that the squared version will continue to delight those who own them and have given them as gifts.

      So there you have, as Paul Harvey would say, “the of the rest of the story.”

      Thanks,
      Peg

      PS: That was one of the first questions Ami asked when she saw them! :)

      Mary Lee-

      The answer is yes.- BUT I havent found a satisfactory way yet- There is NO glue that will just attach the charms to a clip-permanently–I have tried. When I tested them I was not pleased with the results.

      I have not totally given up on it either.

      Please see reply #27- it explains why hanging from the corners- cant be done YET.
      I have also attempted to make them in a true diamond shape- but that actually makes the area available to punch the hole in even smaller-thus making it even harder than turning the square on point.

      Glad to know another on point Gal.

    Ok, that’s like asking which child I like the best! Depends on the day…..

    I purchased several pairs from the first post for Christmas gifts and the only way I have kept from keeping all of them for myself is to “hid” them in the gift pile! They are all beautiful – I think you deserve all of them!!!!!

    Do you have any interest in selling them in a quilt shop???

    Out of 4, 5, and 6 – 4 is definitely my favorite.

    1,2 and 3 are harder to choose between – I’d say that I prefer 3.
