Another fun challenge this month and a new one for Earrings Everyday.
The collaborating team of this fantastic blog are posting
a monthly challenge… just for earrings.
“We’re All Ears Inspiration Challenge”
Who doesn’t love earrings ??
Here’s how to play along: On the first Friday of the month, they will post an inspiration…
a photo, painting, song, poem, person, movie, place, textile, etc…
You have two weeks to create your pair of inspired earrings
and be ready to post a link on the third Friday of the month.
It’s a pretty short turn around time as challenges go,
but earrings are pretty small creations, right ?!
This month was a sweet photo of two Damsel Dragonflies,
obviously in love.
They have these delicate articulated body structures…
such fragile looking creatures.
I was taken with the wire work possibilities and the iridescent shimmery colors.
Kristy’s Kreation’s earrings really got me going…
Here’s my design that had me diving into my large stash of seed beads.
Which is funny, since I don’t do bead weaving.
Must have thousands of these tiny, lovely beads.
Seed beads and oxidized copper wire with handcrafted ear wires.
When the light shines through these, they just glow.
Perhaps you’d like to play along next month.
Meanwhile, hop on over to Earrings Everyday to see what everyone else created.
