    Was there a difference between earring files with identical vs. nonidentical models? I confess I don't know because this is the first asymmetric design I've done.

    And I swear that these were purchased from SW. This time. ;)

    How did you come up with such realistic-looking snowflakes? DLA?

    I thought you were going to sell earrings individually since there's no longer any price advantage to selling in pairs (identical or not). However I see now they are being sold as a pair at least on SW. Carry on!

    Sorry, DLA stands for diffusion-limited aggregation. It is apparently how snowflakes grow, and randomly too.

    P.S. Thank you for the book reference. I'm definitely going to pick that up from Amazon some time.
