Lisa's Earrings Jewelry Making ProjectLisa's Pendant Jewelry Making ProjectWe put a lot of thought into how we name our jewelry projects.  Each project has its own name.  For the earrings shown here, we made these earrings the first time at the Tucson International Gem and Jewelry Show.  Many people at the show saw the earrings and said they looked like teardrops.  We could not name the earrings Teardrop Earrings for the simple reason that this reminds us of a Country and Western song and is just too sad.  Since the first person to wear these earrings was Lisa, one of our favorite earring models, and the earrings were made specifically for her initially, we have named the earrings and matching pendant -- Lisa's Earrings/Pendant.  The design is similar, but much larger than our Falling Raindrop Earrings

While we are on this topic -- do you know what happens if you play a Country and Western song backward?  When you play a Country and Western song backward, your dog comes home, your wife leaves your best friend and moves back in with you, and your pick-up truck gets fixed.  (Small attempt at humor.)
