AJE Earring Challenge Reveal 16, Weeks 31/52 & 32/52

Art Jewelry Elements

The weeks are just flying by and it's already time for the 16th reveal of the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge!


 My earrings for week 31/52 are made with a pair of Ellen Dooley's beautiful blue halo discs, sterling silver beads, topaz colored Lucite teardrop, red waxed linen cording, silver plated jumprings and handmade silver filled earwires.


My earrings for week 32/52 are made with a pair of bronze horse beads by Star Spirit Studio, suspended from purple waxed linen cording, braided with seedbeads, handmade brass jumprings and earwires.


I recently bought several beautiful colors of the waxed linen cording from Lori Eurto's shop Jewelry Accord.  I'm having so much fun creating with it and you'll probably see more designs soon.

AJE Earring Challenge Reveal 15, Weeks 29/52 & 30/52



It's time for the 15th reveal of the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge!

My earrings for week 29 are made with a lovely pair of Ellen Dooley's electroformed poppy crowns and some of her handmade lampwork beads, all wrapped up with copper wire.



 For week 30, something a little different. Little turtle ponds made with circles of water color paper, water color paint, clear acrylic coating and Vintaj brass turtle charms, lightly patined. And, because I can't leave well enough alone, I hammered around the edges of the paper, just a tad.  I wanted to soften the edges some, but gave them a ragged look.


The idea for these came from my granddaughter telling me that my water color circles looked like little ponds and I just happened to have the turtle charms in my bead stash.
