This month for the We're All Ears challenge, Erin has inspired us to make earrings based on all the unique shapes of seed pods! You can read more about why she had seed pods on the brain over on the Earrings Everyday blog HERE.
Here are some of the cool vintage botanical prints that Erin shared with us to get us going:
The first thing that came to my mind for this challenge were some copper plated pewter poppy pods from Nunn Design. (I have them in silver too but that didn't feel very forest floor!) I paired them with some fun swirled Czech glass coin beads. These are a bit on the heavy side for earrings, so they won't be for everyone!
My second two pairs of earrings may be more spore or mushroom like than pod themed, but hopefully it's not too big of a stretch! I received both the orangey-red speckled ceramic beads and the green and gold wood beads in a shipment from Blueberry Cove Beads. For the orangey pair I mixed in some Czech glass drops and tiny rondelles. For the green pair I added some faceted agate beads to the wood and copper plated findings.
I hope you'll stop by the Earrings Everyday blog to see what everyone else was inspired to create this month!
