Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge
Love earrings? I do. That’s how I first got started making jewelry. I wanted. More. Earrings. So I’ve joined the Art Jewelry Elements 2013 Earring Challenge. To meet the challenge I must create a pair of earrings every week and join up on the blog hop every other Sunday.
Purple Pansy Earrings
When I was a little girl, our church passed out small potted pansies to the children on Easter, as a symbol of new life and growth. I was enchanted. The little pansy faces were so sweet and I have loved flowers ever since. When I saw these gorgeous wooden, handmade pansy charms in J-Lynn Jewels’ shop, I didn’t even hesitate for a second. I had to have them!
The purple lampwork glass beads, by Beads and Botanicals, accent the charms perfectly. The jet black trailings around the glass beads, even echo the black on the edges of the charms. These two were made for each other! I adore these earrings (if I do say so) and hope they will find a home with a flower lover and/or gardener.
I’ve already blogged about my second pair of earrings. So I’ll just mention that the “Green Spindle Earrings” feature handmade ceramic charms by Marti’s Buttons and Beads.
Both of these earrings are available in my Etsy shop, Linda Landig Jewelry.
Now I suggest that you click here to go to the AJE blog, where you’ll find links to all the other Art Jewelry Earring participants. So much beauty and inspiration to enjoy there today! Have fun!
