When Jeff and I were in Austin, and especially when we were at Renegade, I just had to pick up some goodies handmade by other artists. These earrings were one of my lucky finds, made by Lacey Dupre of LaceyDu.
They're made of nutria fur. The nutria is a little creature that lives in the coastal wetlands area, including Louisiana, where Lacey is from. The nutria is not native to the area (they were brought over by the British, I believe) and when a bunch of nutria move in to a wetland area, they descimate it. Population control measures are taken to keep the species down, and protect our wetlands. I realize this is a controversial topic for many people, the "population control" of non-native animal species. If your opinions ere on the negative side of the debate, feel free to leave a comment. Simply be polite and constructive with your words. And, thanks!
Now back to what I wore with these lovely earrings. . .

Lazy Sunday around my home. I hope everyone is having a great Sunday as well!
