I just wanted to update a few of you who are interested about what’s going on with my hair lately. Thsi si a mini review of a product called Kinky Curly Custard.
For those who know how difficult it can be to manage extremely curly hair, you know how important it is to clump the hair together if you are going for a curly look. I learned alot from websites like tightly-curly.com and the shingling section of missjessies.com.

So I have made a big decision to move to California! The big move us only three weeks away and boy am I excited.
But in the meantime I’ve been working on some brand new earrings to sell.
One of my favorite clients that purchased my earrings let me know of a great book that I just HAD to grab.
So I got a copy of a fabulous book right away. It’s called ‘Fly Tops and Funky Flavas’ by Afya Ibomu. It’s one of a two-book series called Get Your Crochet on. Tre cool!! 🙂
I couldn’t resist making the earrings. But my LYS (local craft store) didn’t sell any plastic Cabones. :(. So I substituted with metal purse claps. They look like big washers. They are cute, but not quite what I was looking for. So here was the project in process:
Unfortunately I’ve put them on only to find that they were WAY too heavy!!! Back to the drawing board!!
After finding a different medium for the outer ring, this is my final product! I hate that the thread cost me five dollars to make only one pair. (Really expensive). But… totally worth it. Aren’t they cute!!!
So, off they go into the purchase section!
Only available in silver and gold at the moment.
I’ll make sure to keep you posted as I prepare to take is all to the “left coast”. And continue to stay in touch with me! I’d love to try something you suggest. Maybe I’ll even blog a bit about it!
My Aunt Crista wore MadeByAmber thread earrings on The Dr. Oz Show. I’m famous! Lol
