AJE Earring Challenge: Week 3 & 4

Although I am not happy with Week 3, I absolutely love Week 4.  I love dangles.  Week 3 was made with antique gold findings and lampwork beads by Carolyn Harman of the Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Artists.  Week 4 was made using gunmetal findings and more lampwork beads by Carolyn Harman.  I will probably be using a lot of her beads, especially since she started making tiny lampwork beads perfect for earrings.  I am fortunate that she s my friend, and she also attends open bead night at my favorite bead shop STASH and she brings her new stuff to sell at the shop.  I love showcasing local artists in my beadwork and jewelry making.  If you are in the Ohio area and have beads or other handmade findings that you sell, leave a comment below.  Now onto week 3 and 4 of the Year of Jewelry challenge.

I like the week 3 earrings Renetha. What is it you don't like about them?

In the pic the earrings are kind of crooked and the end caps don't sit perfectly. But that's just perfectionist in me.
