Art Jewelry Earring Challenge Reveal
Its time for another Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge Reveal. For those of you who haven’t been following along, the challenge is to make a pair of earrings, each week, that use at least one artisan component.
I’m a little behind with my earrings because I was sick earlier this week. I’ll post one pair here and either later today or tomorrow I’ll add another pair. Catching up step by step. 😉
Little Bow Earrings
This pair of earrings features adorable ceramic heart charms by Mary Harding. I love Mary’s nature inspired work and her color sense.
As I sat down to work on these, I knew I wanted to use the brass spiral beads, but I hadn’t decided yet how to attach everything. That was when I spied a strand of silk that Marsha Neal had given me at Bead Fest last August. It was a perfect accent for the hearts. I looped the silk through the charms and the beads and then tied pretty little bow in the middle. I added a touch of glue in the back to secure the bows so they won’t come loose. Then I made the earwires and included a little turquoise fire polish bead just above the loop.
I haven’t added these to my shop yet–that’s my next task today. Once they are listed, I’ll come back here and add a link. The Little Bow Earrings have been added to my shop now.
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
