We’re All Ears Challenge, January 2017

The last time I participated in the We’re All Ears Challenge, sponsored by the Earrings Everyday team, was last October. Although I wanted to join the November and December challenges it just did not work out.

The inspiration for this month follows their annual Colour of the Year. This time it’s the Pantone colour Greenery.





I love the colour green, especially a spring fresh shade like this one and had 2 designs planned out. I was able to complete 1.  The Muffin Tin Challenge showed me that I work better with an end date so I’ve given myself a deadline of 1 week to finish it.

Here’s the one I did complete. I like to name my designs, and of course there’s only one name that fits, Greenery.


Greenery

The wonderful ceramic discs, glazed front and back, are from Linda Landig and just came in a couple of days ago. I teamed them with copper, waxed linen and some perfectly imperfect seed beads. The colour match of the discs to the seed beads is spot on. The dangles also have some copper beads added to help bring the whole design together.

I’m very happy with how these earrings came together. They are available in my shop here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day

  3. "Perfectly Imperfectly beads" - that sounds like a great name for a bead company

    1. Doesn't it Divya? It's a description that springs to mind every time I'm working with something that isn't made with a manufacturing exactitude

  6. I love these! The color green looks so cool and fresh, and the design reminds me of dreamcatchers. I always buy new jewelry in spring to celebrate the start of the season. I think there's something special about homemade jewelry that can't be captured with factory-made pieces. My favorite sets are bought from online sellers, and usually made with clay and beads.
