These earrings were made of fused glass by an artist named Juan Pablo Boroski who lives in Chile. I bought them at the Fair Trade shop in Harper's Ferry, WV. I wore them today because I knew I was in for a long, hot day. When my students commented on them, I responded, "Don't they look like candy?"
"Are we having candy today?"
"No, but wearing them makes me feel like I have extra energy. Don't they look icy?"
"We're going somewhere cold?"
"No, but wearing them makes me feel chill."
We did have popsicles this afternoon. It was a long hot day.
And along with my glass earrings, I wore my green reading glasses on a bead and stone chain that I made to match.
"Did you know your glasses match your earrings?"
"They're green and blue. They match everything she wears."
True. Thanks, Juan Pablo.
