Today is the day of my Enameled Rondelle Challenge Blog Hop! Yep, the same day as Amy’s. Oh well. Hope you read both! I had fun with both challenges, and I hope you enjoy reading about them! I chose 5 people to receive a pair of enameled rondelles, in a random color, and their job was to create something with them! I made earrings, of course, because I was on an earring roll! And I like them for earrings! But I’m sure someone will not make earrings! I can’t wait to see what they all made. Here, I made earrings two ways.
For this pair of earrings, I wrapped the rondelles like you would a briolette. I had a little bit of a hard time with this, because I have been having what I can only guess are pre-menopausal moments lately, and forget how to do things. Ugh. Anyways, I wrapped the rondelles like briolettes, eventually, and attached them to a dangle made with this gorgeous faceted yellow agate teardrops. If I made them again, I would add a little heishe on either side of the rondelle before I wrapped them! For a more finished look.
This second pair, I turned the rondelles in the other orientation, and added some greek ceramic gears, silver heishe, and silver beads. I like these, too, but you can see the rondelle better in the first orientation. I think either one is great, though, and I hope you like them too!
Please check out what these lovely ladies have done with the rondelles that I sent them!
If you leave a comment here, today, I will enter you to win your very own pair of enameled rondelles. I will choose the winner on Tuesday, May 29th about 8 pm!
