Big, Bold and Sassy Earrings

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.

Big, Bold and Sassy Earrings

I only got one pair of earrings made this week.  I’ll try to catch up by the next earring reveal.  I paired some cool patinated copper beads from Miss Fickle Media with some spiky dangles by Off Center Productions.  The patina on the beads looks like it was splashed on, creating a rustic effect that goes well with the spikes.  These puppies are 3 inches long and really make a statement.  Fun to wear!

Turquoise-Hued Earrings

Earrings with Charm

I recently purchased some delightful handmade metal charms and beads from Miss Fickle Media.  Shannon LeVart, the artist behind Miss Fickle Media, is well known for her rustic metal components and unique patinas.  These are the first two earrings I’ve designed with her metal charms.

I made this first pair on the Summer Solstice and I decided that would be the perfect name for them.  The carnelian looks like a blazing sun and the brass dangles with their turquoise patina could be the sky in which that sun is hanging.  Summer Solstice Earrings:

I love the artsy elegance of this next pair.  I call them “Wave Earrings“, because the textured pattern reminds me of waves or ripples on a river bed.  The charms are made of brass with a verdigris patina.  I paired them with amazonite, which I wired with a graceful swoop of copper across the face of the amazonite bead.
