"Okay... I'm seriously an earring addict! I freely admit it! There is one thing that I really love about myself and that is my First Nation heritage. My grandfather was half Cherokee and my grandmother was a quarter Choctaw. Occasionally, I will create something that is a nod to my heritage in color scheme and design. These earrings echo the colors of the desert of the both the Cherokee and Choctaw reservations in Oklahoma where my grandparents traveled to on a regular basis during their younger years. Turquoise, copper, vibrant reds, rich blacks, and soft tans combine to create beautiful color palettes for the First Nations."

A great looking pair of earrings. Very good use of different colors and shapes. I do see a subtle hint of how these acquired the name of Cherokee. I can also see a hint of boho in these also and with the right colors these could be completed changed to a boho look. I only need to purchase the discs.

. These are different and I love different types of projects. I don't want cookie cutter styles that every else is wearing. I like conversation staters. These take very little in the way of materials or time. This is a great beginner project. There is nothing hard about it. Thanks for sharing!
