Earrings Everyday continues to inspire me

with their monthly  “We’re All Ears” challenges.

July is no exception with this powerful poster image.

Two sailing boats on Puget Sound, in Washington state.


It was posted on July 4th and besides the obvious patriotic theme,

there is so much energy and movement in photo.

Can’t you almost feel the sea spray in your face

and wind in your hair ?

My goal was to capture some of those gorgeous blues of the sea and sky…

and give the earrings a feeling of easy breezy movement.

I was pleased that their shape also mimicked some of the geometric motif in the sails.

Funny how I just cannot seem to get away from seed beads

in these monthly challenges…is it a challenge within a challenge??


Now, I’m heading over to Earrings Everyday to see what everyone else created.

 I love earrings  !

    You sure captured a feeling when you described the sailboat image – just love the ocean and so happy it’s summertime! You can see how you were inspired with your earring design – the dangly seedbead design is beautiful! 🙂
