Earrings to Shut My Mother-In-Law Up

"Why don't you make nice jewelry that normal people can wear?" My mother-in-law is generally a sweet person, but our jewelry seriously disrupts the balance of her universe. We don't have the heart to let her
know that we actually find this amusing. Instead we made these, as a sort of offering/sacrifice. Unfortunately, we did not anticipate the law of unintended consequences, as this gesture simply reinforced her opinion that we are "squandering the God-given talent" that we have. Oh well, back to the studio for us. We gots us some squandering to do.

This is a hoot. I hope she doesn't read your crafthaus blogs! Then you'd really be in a pickle!

LOL!

Love the story! I think every artist has a critic exactly like this, though I doubt all of them are mother-in-laws.

You just can't please them all...
