Whimsical: AJE Earring Challenge 33/34

Pin It

Week 33 was posted here: Summer Color Surprise Bonus Earrings.

Week 34:

These sweet focals look like carved or perhaps burn-decorated wood. They are actually faux-wood polymer clay bracelet components, with the design stamped and antiqued, by Rebekah Payne of Tree Wings Studio (yes, "home of the oh-so-cute Sleepy Critter beads"). I have simply strung tiny glass beads on beading wire and hung my design on handmade "Dressed-Up Earwires" by Shelley Graham Turner of Tori Sophia (shop on vacation right now but check back later!) 

Visit the AJE Pinterest board often for new designs!


  1. They really do look carved, they are beautiful!

  2. these polymer pieces are beautiful~gorgeous design and color. i really like how you supported them. it looks like a piece of art resting on an easel.

  3. I absolutely LOVE those focal beads! those are so cool! great design Monique!

  4. I love the 'wood' look of the focal beads, and those tiny colorful glass beads are wonderful. Great design!
