AJE Earring Challenge Reveal – Week 23 & 24


Art Jewelry Earring Challenge Reveal

Its time for another Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge Reveal.  Participants have challenged themselves to make a pair of earrings every week.  All of our earrings include art beads or components.  Here are my new creations from the past 2 weeks.

Garden Breeze Earrings

I wanted to make some earrings using these fantastic handmade copper headpins by Kristi Bowman Design.  I got out a bunch of lampwork beads to see how they looked with the copper.  Once I laid these lavender, periwinkle and yellow lampwork beads next to the copper, I knew I had a winner. The colors just sing together.  I named them the Garden Breeze earrings because the colors reminded me of the iris we have in our garden.

New Leaf Earrings

For my second pair of earrings, I used lampwork glass from Beads and Botanicals and accented them with yellow-green glass leaves.  The beads are strung on enameled headpins by Sue Beads,  Newly unfurled leaves often have a strong yellow cast to them, especially in the early spring.  I named this pair of earrings “New Leaf Earrings” because of the yellow-green bands on the leaf beads.
