Why Can't I Be a Joe ...

... and got into plumbing? I have a feeling every entrepreneur in America woke up this morning wishing he or she was Joe the Plumber. Not for the sake of politics, but exposure is everything and this fortunate guy got more than his share of exposure! Talk about free advertising. Sheesh!

Oh well. Such is life. I'll have to settle for making these things. I may not make the money Joe makes ... and I'm sure he'll be getting a LOT more business with his global exposure ... at least my choice of career isn't as stinky and slimy and sludgy.

I really like bling. And cubic zirconia provides a lot of bling for the buck. Isn't the color luscious? Combined with the gleam of the hammered gold rings and ovals, dangling at 2.5 inches, this pair of earrings is perfect when glam is needed.

These will be listed on my Etsy shop later today. I'll be back to update with the link.

ETA: Almost forgot the link!

these are so pretty. I love hammered silver and just seems to add a special glow to the stones as well:) Great job!

Hmm, not sure you want to be Joe the plumber heh heh... he's starting to get a bad rep from some people.

You make wonderful jewelry and wish you the best of luck!

Because if you were Joe we wouldn't have your beautiful jewelry :-)

At least you don't have to deal with media coverage Joe has seen. Yes, I know it might end up being good for his business, but must be bad for his personal life!

The earrings are very pretty.
