The way the water droplets are beaded up all over these little creatures immediately made me think of a certain type of lampwork glass. I thought I might just have something like that in my stash, but no luck. But then I started unpacking all my new treasures from the Bead Cruise and I found just the perfect beads! I won these cute little beaded beads from Kristen Stevens (of Beadwork by KAS) as part of the Art Jewelry Elements prize package and I realized that the texture from the seed beads echoed the beads of moisture. I added some brass bead caps, Czech glass rondelles, and some sweet little teardrop beads from Unicorn Beads.
I couldn't stop at just one pair of earrings this month! For my second pair I did a variation on theme. I grabbed some left over spacer beads that came with a gorgeous luna moth focal from the talented Kerri Fuhr. I thought the clear pale green color worked nicely for this challenge paired with some little Czech glass beads and some more teardrops from Unicorn Beads.
