AJE Earring Challenge Reveal 12, Weeks 23/52 & 24/52

Welcome to the 12th reveal for the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge!
I've been super busy with work lately and have missed out on several of the reveals.  I finally took some much needed vacation and am playing catch up on my earring making.

Here are my earrings for week 23/52


 I used a pair of Lola Surwillo's (of Bead Lola Bead) lovely blue polymer clay rondelle beads, wire wrapped with dark blue glass rondelles and suspended from gun metal colored chain.

 And my earrings for week 24/52


 I used a pair of copper disks that I hammered, domed slightly and brushed with Vintaj patina. I suspended the copper disks from brown waxed linen, braided with turquoise and terracotta colored seed beads.

 For the 12th Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge Reveal blog hop, please visit Art Jewelry Elements blog to see the other participants earring designs.
Wishing you a blessed and creative week!

Bead Hoarders Unite!

Are you a bead hoarder?  Not sure?  Has your bead stash grown so large that it's taken over your work table?  Have you had to buy/rent a storage building to store your growing bead collection?  Have you had to build another house because your bead collection became so huge that it took over your first house?!  Okay....maybe that's a bit dramatic.  

If your bead collection has gotten a little out of hand, or if you need some motivation to be creative, visit Lori Anderson's blog, Pretty Things and sign up for the Bead Hoarders Blog Hop.  Sign ups are June 21 - 28 and the blog hop will be July 20th.
