B'Sue Boutiques recently posted about some earrings I made for the fall issue of Stringing. I wanted to share them not to brag about myself, but because I know it can be intimidating to send in your work to a magazine or contest or sell it at a craft show or on Etsy. These earrings are proof that you don't have to make something overly complicated to be successful. If I can do it, you can do it. Really!
