AJE Earring Challenge Reveal

Love earrings?  I do. It’s impossible to have too many earrings, as far as I’m concerned!   So I joined the Art Jewelry Elements 2013 Earring Challenge.  To meet the challenge, participants must create a pair of earrings each week and join up on the blog hop every other Sunday.

As you may know, I’m taking a wire-working e-course from Kerry Bogert.  My earrings this week, are from one of Kerry’s class projects.  Much as I would like to appear all skilled on my blog, I must be honest and  admit that I rather suck at wire work and these earrings are no exception.  Well they are not all bad, but I’m not happy with the spirals.  I just have to keep practicing!  But I do like the purple coils I made and that I managed to get the  tear drop shapes on each earring to match.  That tripped up some of the other class participants.  I also made the ear wires myself.

I am always delighted to read your comments!   Hope to hear from you.

  1. Coiling is so much fun, these are so pretty Linda! After alot of back and forth I didn’t end up taking Kerry’s class but seeing all the wonderful creations coming from it I had to get me a coiling Gizmo and it’s so much fun.

  2. I’m loving Kerry’s course, and at the moment I’m indulging in some serious teardrop envy!! Yours are perfection – love the handmade earwires, too.

  3. I think they look great! I know we are always hardest on ourselves, but you are doing a fantastic job. I kind of wish i took this class, but just couldn’t part with the $$$$. I think you’re doing great!

    • Thanks, Sue! I appreciate the encouragement. I have some ideas about how I can alter this pair of earrings to make them sale-able. Then I want to try again and see if I can nail those spirals with more practice!.

  4. These are lovely earrings Linda, I think your wire work is great and I love the purple and silver toogether, I tried my hand at spiral this week using thinner wire than you have used in these and mine suck big time.

  5. I love your coils! The purple is so fun… and I have a hard time with spirals too! You are so not alone in that! I guess we just have one solution. MORE EARRINGS
