So, in case you couldn’t have guessed, I had (have? I honestly don’t know the correct tense) scoliosis. (For more info, go here.) My curves were 47 on bottom, 54 on top the summer I turned 8. Clearly, it was pretty bad.
I had the surgery to correct it when I was 12, but it still affects my life daily. Which means, of course, it was bound to show up sooner or later.
I had been planning these several months before I actually made them. The medium has switched from clay to embroidery to clay again to beads. I had been planning on entering them in Craftster Challenge 71 – “Just Bead It!” – then realized they probably weren’t what they were going for.
After that terribly long introduction, here they are, made of silver wire and clear/pearlescent glass beads: my scoliosis earrings.
I know the one on the left looks bigger, but I swear they’re the same size.
I don’t have a picture of me wearing them because, unfortunately, both of my ear piercings are infected at the moment. 😦
Stay golden, guys!
