Sometimes Things Don't Go As Planned

I was experimenting with two different earring ideas. The hoop things are nice but not very secure, I need to find a better way to hold the ear wire in place. The little straight ones turned out ok too except right at the end I broke a brio. I heard it go crack and now it's loose in the setting and will probably fall out soon. The pendant didn't cooperate either. Where the faceted topaz, aquamarine (or what ever it is) is there was supposed to be a beautiful little 4mm turquoise cab. I spent a couple hours working on setting it but it just wasn't happening... Very frustrating! So three projects that took their toll on my nerves! lol
