AJE Earring Challenge: Week 5
Art Jewelry Elements is hosting a wonderful earring challenge. The challenge is to make a pair of earrings a week. This pair was made with gold plated findings and lampwork beads by Carolyn Harman of the Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Artists. 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 is 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 work I use in my jewelry. If you are in the Ohio area and have beads or other handmade findings that you sell, leave a comment below. I am not sure when the week begins or ends for each challenge, so I will try to post my earrings every Tuesday.
