Another artncraft, jewelry design:



Oct, 1929

Ernest was given gifts of jewelry by his lady friends, and it looks like he reciprocated.  No info about whether or not he made the earrings, but considering how much he liked bead work, he may have done.

*Squee!* as the kids say today; I'm so excited to have found this image of Ernest as Violet Banks in "On With the Dance" the 1925 revue by Noel Coward and some other guys.  Other gal at right is professional female impersonator Douglas Byng:



In another sketch Ernest appeared as a curate singing "Even Clergymen Can Be Naughty Now and Then."   Cheesy

Some stuff is just too good to relegate to only the website.   Smiley

Working on a page which includes some of Ernest's ugly loser friends such as

Percy Grainger, pianist and composer:



F.S. Kelly, musician, composer, Olympic rowing champion:



drawings by John Singer Sargent, portraitist of ugly losers.  Wink

Ernest was collecting composers there for awhile...

Oh, and I should mention he did some composing of his own; for his role in "The Little Damozel" he had to play the piano and sing, so he composed a little tune in his limited range (he'd had a good singing voice as a child, but his voice kind of flattened out instead of breaking when he reached puberty).  People liked the song enough they often asked him who had composed it and where to get the music!  Cheesy

Here's the nifty branch I received from yofi.  She made it in the form of a tree with little bird beads on it:



Thank you yofi, it's lovely!   Kiss

I received a lovely two-sided dotee from blupaisan;

Sunny side:



Moon side:



I love the choice of fabrics and how they are decorated, with embroidered faces, and a little Earth slung below.  Thank you, blupaisan!   Kiss
