AJE Earring Challenge: Weeks 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20......

Art Jewelry Elements is hosting a wonderful earring challenge.  The challenge is to make a pair of earrings a week.  Once again, I am behind on my projects.  My oldest son had kidney problems when he was a toddler, and the problem back.  Not bad, just back with many appointments with specialists.  My middle son's fall 2012 football injury to his elbow--not healing/growing the way it should.  Surgery in two weeks.  My youngest is having trouble sleeping more than 4 hours a night.  He has CP, which means I or my husband have to stay up with him until he decides to fall asleep.  Last, but not least, the doctors determined that my mom has some internal bleeding--more tests and specialists.  Now, she is waiting to hear back from the doctors (as am I).  Can you say stressful summer ahead for the Stanzianos?

Well, back to earrings.

So sorry to hear about all the health problems your family is experiencing! Why is it so often that when it rains it pours? I think my favorites of your earrings are weeks 19 and 17...but they are all lovely! So much fun to see what everyone is making.
