The title/theme of this challenge is Anchors Aweigh!  Here is a link to the art beads each designer was sent to work with:  SGS.

As I continue to learn all I can about beading, I have discovered that I love to make earrings.  So that is what I made for this challenge.

Such an adorable pair of earrings. I love making earrings. They are such fun, and so easy to wear. I like that you paired our anchors with sea glass. Very nice.

I love the design of the earrings. The circles on top of the diamond shaped sea glass are really visually interesting. Great job!

Christina Miles said...

Very pretty mixed with the sea glass and twisted jump rope! Sea glass is so fun to play with!

Jill Bradley said...

The weight of the rings balances out the anchor bead really well and with the sea glass you created a great style!

I'm severely earring challenged, so I'm digging these! Great design!
