AJE Earring Challenge: Completed!

Art Jewelry Elements challenged jewelry designers to make a pair of earrings every week for 52 weeks using art beads!  That's a lot of earrings.  I am amazed that I managed to complete all 52 pairs of earrings.  Sometimes I had to take breaks due to family obligations, but I guess we all go through that at one time or another.  This challenge was fun, inspirational, and a great learning experience. Here are my last 8 sets of earrings. 45  Art Beads by Pat Westby, MVLBA 46  Art Beads by Flame on Glass, ETSY 47  Top Art Bead by Carolyn Harmon, MVLBA Bottom Artbead, Art Insomnia Beads 48  Art Beads by Flame on Glass, ETSY 49  Art Beads by Stone Designs, ETSY 50  Art Beads by XINAR, EBAY 51  Art Beads, artist unknown.  Just beautiful, red, sugared spacers. 52  Art Beads by Carolyn Harmon, MVLBA Now what to do with all of these earrings?   Don't forget to stop by the AJE Pinterest page to see earrings by other designers.  Thank you AJE f
