The very cute and funny Diana Ptaszynski of Suburban Girl Studio hosted a fun art bead earring swap. She’s done this before with just one partner, but this year we got two partners! My partners were Fay Wolfenden, of Torchfairy, and Sharleen Newland, of Shaterra Clay Studio!
These are the earrings that Fay sent me! She made the gorgeous fused glass cabs, and attached a copper bail on the back, to hang them from the ear wires.
You can see the dichroic glass better in this photo – I love it! So sparkly! You can see more of Fay’s work in her etsy store – FayWolfendenDesigns – and at her web site – Fay Wolfenden Designs. She also makes these fantastic silk flowers! I love them! She sent this cute little barrette along as a gift – so nice!
My second partner was Sharleen Newland of Shaterra Clay Studio. You may know her ceramic work. She sent these gorgeous earrings made with beautiful tubes of clay! The colors are so pretty!
Here you can see the ceramic tubes better – I’m so happy to have some of her work! Gorgeous! You can find Sharleen’s work on etsy as well at ShaterraClayStudio!
Here’s a photo of the earrings I set to each of them! I used my enameled fluted bead caps, swarovski crystal and some beautiful faceted round purple agate!
Here’s a list to see all the participants! Check them out!
