AJE Earring Challenge Catch-Up Part I: Weeks 35-38

Pin It

I have a lot of catching up to do, so I will try to be much less wordy than usual!

Week 35: Back in my stock of awesome Outwest lampwork for this mismatched disc and squared ring pair. I love the "dressed-up ear-wires" from Tori Sophia. Strung on waxed linen with some mixed glass bling.

 Week 36: Ceramic discs in light green, on silk cord, both from Marsha Neal Studio. The organic blue beads are by Potterygirl1. My own handmade earwires in green niobium. 

Week 37: I started with very fine (1.2 x 2 mm) purple and gold chain and mixed it up with more Tori Sophia ear-wires. Demure orange lampwork spacers by StudioJuls and Outwest, but mixed with the purple have a space-opera-Halloween vibe.

Week 38: Top and bottom handmade brass headpins from Ghana, with traditional Adinkra symbols, Soul of Somanya. The newt charms are by Round Rabbit, the earthy lampwork is StudioJuls. Finished with tiny red topaz and diagonal cube glass.

I notice my camera is acting up these days. It might be time to invest in a better toy :) Part II later today/tomorrow.

Please check over at the Art Jewelry Elements Pinterest board where new creations are added regularly. I noticed there are now just under 900 designs... Wow! That is a LOT of inspiration!

I'll post tomorrow the remainder of my catch-up earrings. See you then!
