AJE Earring Challenge Reveal 21 – Weeks 43 & 44/52

Hard to believe we are well into November already!  I haven’t really been keeping up with my blog or jewelry making lately, or my etsy shop for that matter (although I am well stocked now!!!  Take a LOOK!) 

I’ve been on a tear making beaded beads right now, which I really love – I can make them when I am “relaxing” so to speak!  Here are some earrings I made with them!

Thanks for checking out our earring challenge – you can go to the Art Jewelry Elements blog to see what everyone else made!

AJE Earring Challenge Reveal #19, Weeks 39 & 40/52

Over at Art Jewelry Elements, we continue to have our twice monthly earring challenge reveal.  I have been a bit busy, under the weather, etc. to keep up, but this time I posted 4 pairs of earrings to our board!  Here they are!

These earrings are made with my own lampwork headpins, and pink quartz heishe.  I also made the niobium ear wires myself.  I was hoping they would solve my ear wire sensitivity issue, but they did not. I guess I’m just going to have to wear 14k gold.  Boo hoo!

These earrings were made form cute little charms by Mary Welsh Hubbard (White Clover Kiln – I love her beads!) and my own swirly lampwork beads.  Still not sure about the color combo – think I need to go with more pinky/purple than aqua.

More earrings with my own lampwork headpins and czech faceted rondelles!  I really like these!

Finally my own lampwork headpins with some beads that were called “titanium hematite” by the vendor from whom I purchased them at Bead Fest Philly.  I did not get their name and wish I would have bought more!  Does anyone know who they are or where you can get such beads?

Thanks for checking out my blog, please hop on over to the AJE Blog to check out the links for everyone else’s earrings!

AJE Earring Challenge Reveal – Weeks 27 & 28/52

I’m finally caught up on my earrings for the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge and this week, I was the one who picked some earrings to be featured on our blog!  Here’s what I made!

 These earrings are made with some brass keys that I patinaed with Ranger patinas.  I love how the blues turned out!

And these are some earrings made with my new abstract bird beads.  Not a lot of detail on the birds, just a nuanced design!  You can find these at Bead Fest Philly in August, I’ll be in Booth 463!  I’ll also start listing some in my etsy store soon!

Check out of the AJE Blog to see what earrings were featured this week!
