Happy Monday! Boy, the two weeks since my last New Earring Monday have just flown by! With trying to get caught up from a trip to San Diego, several jewelry design challenges, and a quick weekend trip to San Francisco, I've been burning the candle at both ends. Luckily I've still found time to keep up with my personal earring challenge.
I thought I share a couple of pairs of earrings that are sort a jumping off from the most recent We're All Ears challenge. Full disclosure, I made this first little pair a few weeks ago (yup, sometimes I keep things back for when life throws me a curve-ball). They totally fit with the tide pool inspiration, but I figured since I made so many other pairs for the WAE challenge that I would "save" these for today! I embossed some small brass circles (loving this new to me size!) with mismatched sea life designs and added a little aqua paint before sealing with Renaissance Wax. I paired them with some Czech glass rondelles in coordinating colors for a perfect beach-y pair of earrings.
Next up is a pair that is similar to one I made with starfish charms for the WAE challenge. This time I used some pretty little polymer clay leaf charms from Humblebeads. To keep them more affordable, I paired the charms with some Czech glass rounds wire wrapped with brass filigree bead caps, more glass, and tiny coated hematite beads with little facets.
