Wear Your Troubles Away

As a teenager, I had a pair of fun earrings made from worry dolls. Alas, I was foolish enough to get rid of them many years ago, so when I started craving the colorful little guys again, I had to make a new pair:
It took me a while to figure out how to "set" the dolls. The original earrings had each doll on a jumpring, with the rings connected together to make a dangle. There was no way to do that with these guys, however, without breaking them (I've seen others poke holes in the foreheads, but I didn't like the look of that). Sewing them onto felt seemed to be the easiest solution, so once I accepted that these earrings were going to be big and inelegant no matter what, that's what I did.

Good thing I'm not shy about wearing enormous jewelry.


  1. These are AWESOME!! I love 'em. I had a worry doll that I got in Old Town San Diego a few years ago as a souvenir, but I promptly lost it. :/ Lol.

  2. They're tiny, they're easy to lose. Who knows how many I've misplaced over the years . . .
