Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge Reveal #3!

AJE Week 4 ~ Walk on the Beach

I've been wanting to use Humblebeads since I met Heather Powers at Bead & Button Show last year.  She is one of the nicest and talented people you will meet!  Her booth was covered with her beautiful beads and it was really hard to choose which ones to bring home!  The starfish charms caught my eyes immediately and I decided to incorporate them to Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge Week 4. I used some Hawaiian Beach glass with copper spacer beads on hammered 16g wire with sterling silver ear wires.

AJE Week 5 ~ Willowflowers

For week #5, I decided to use another one of my finds from Humblebeads.  Simply love this hue of blue!  It will go perfect with jeans :)  I accented the stem with hammered copper beads and crystals onto sterling silver ear wires.  The colors were perfect match!


AJE Week 6 ~ Love Always

I've been admiring J-Lynn Jewels tiles that others have been using and I had to get some myself!  Had to squeeze in one more Valentine's theme earrings.  I tried different design ideas but came back to my first one.  I kept it simple not to take away from the message of the tiles.  I knotted 1.5mm leather cords and hung them on sterling silver ear wires.  Sometimes less is more :)
Love Always
