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.
Denim Elegance Earrings
I’m in a really busy patch of time from now through mid-September. I have lots of wonderful events and learning opportunities on the horizon, but sometimes its hard to keep the necessary momentum going.
A friend of mine hosts an annual Mother/Daughter weekend. I just returned home from that event this afternoon. We went kayaking, had a fire on the beach, played funny party games, ate, drank, reconnected with one another and laughed. At one point during the game we were playing, I was laughing so hard that tears were running down my cheeks!
Anyway, with a lot going on, I only got one pair of earrings made since the last earring reveal. I’d made a similar pair recently, which were purchased from my Facebook page (I love it when that happens, btw). A friend of mine from a town we lived in 7 years ago spied those earrings and wondered if I could make her a pair also. The earrings include denim blue lampwork glass beads from Stone Designs. So I contacted Sheila, the glass artist, and asked if she could replicated the beads. Once I received the beads from Sheila, I went looking for the distinctive earwires that I had used in the first pair of the Denim Elegance earrings. Couldn’t find any. So I made them myself. My friend told me she is delighted with her new earrings and that makes me very happy!
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
