My first pair of earrings this week were designed to compliment my newest necklace design that was made in response to this month's Art Bead Scene challenge. (If you missed that post, you can check it out HERE.) I didn't want the earrings to be too matchy matchy with the necklace so I started with the same leaf shape but in turquoise with a Picasso finish. This pair is a twist on an earring design that I haven't made in a long time. I pulled in some dark read Czech glass beads and plated hematite to round out the design.
Next up is a special order that a friend requested. They are destined to be a gift so I won't out who they were made for! My friend brought me the little "drink me" charms and asked me to make some Alice in Wonderland themed earrings. Today is seriously dreary making winter photography even more challenging than usual so you can't really tell that the jet beads have shiny polka dots on the otherwise matte surface. I chose them because I felt they give a playful feel to the red and black design. I'm hoping my friend loves them... otherwise it will be back to the drawing board!
