Earrings Everyday April Challenge

I discovered the monthly challenges on Earrings Every Day last month, but to late to participate. I've been needing some creative nudging lately and thought this would be perfect.  I kept checking the EED blog for the April challenge, but when I first saw the inspiration photo for April.....nothin'.  I looked at the picture again the next day.  Still....nothin'.  Okay, maybe I won't be participating in April and I'll be inspired by the May challenge.

Later that day, I was working on my Bead Soup project and ran across some Wasabi colored roundelle beads in my stash and Bam! I had an idea for my challenge earrings.
