New Earring and Necklace Designs

I just started making these pieces in the last few weeks. I brought a few out to the Flea show back before Valentine's Day and they seemed to garner at least a bit of interest. I'm intrigued by the process and think they could be a nice addition to the line, but I can't decide what to call them. Of course, no one but me really cares, but when I list pieces in my inventory, it's nice to have a style name.

Of course, I shouldn't even be working on new stuff like this since I have a show coming up in a few weeks in Atlanta. I'm not really sure why I agreed to do a show of this scale, but I guess I saw the American Craft Council brand and got all soft in the head. I'm sure it will all work out, but it feels a little scary to travel 1000 miles to set up shop among a few hundred of the best crafts men and women in the country. The only guarantee--I'll learn a lot.
 If you have friends and family in the Atlanta area, be sure to send along this show info.  The site lists all of the people that will be exhibiting and it looks like a pretty amazing range of work. If your friends do decide to go, tell them to mention their Austin connection when they stop by my booth and I'll give them a little upcycled bling!

i immediately thought "funnels" when I saw them, but kinda like "roll ups" too.
