AJE Earring Challenge: Week 7/8
Art Jewelry Elements
is hosting a wonderful earring challenge. The challenge is to make a pair of earrings a week.
: I used some Vintaj patina on the bead caps in an attempt to match the beads. The bead caps almost look enameled. I also added some Swarovski pearl dangles. I think it worked out great.
Shelley Graham Turner
host a group on Facebook called MarShellSwaps. This group is for beaders who enjoy swaps, hops, and challenges. I missed the first Holiday Bling swap, but happily signed up for the Holiday Bling II swap and hop! I was partnered with Dyanne Everett-Cantrell,
Dee-Liteful Jewelry Creations
ow here is my bling from Dyanne. As you can tell, I used her beads for the earrings.
I found out later that Dyanne made the beads! They are a beautiful cranberry red and cream and look like they are porcelain.
: Silver findings, black Swarovski pearl drop. The art bead was made by Kelly Smith of the
Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Artists
group. She specializes in making tiny lampwork beads. Her lampwork is being featured at
(the best bead shop ever!) this month.
