We’re All Ears February Challenge

So, my computer decided it would start to misbehave Saturday morning, which means I was not able to post until I was back at work today

The inspiration for this month’s We’re All Ears Challenge is patchwork design. Erin, who sets up the Earrings Everyday monthly inspirations fell hard for all kinds of fabric patterns and colours in different designs

My selection for design inspiration is this one:

Pam Beal

Going through my stash I found polymer clay sticks by Sue Lin Tarnowski that I thought were a terrific interpretation of patchwork

The first pair are a mod black and white pattern. To them I added black Onyx rectangles, silver plated spacer beads, waxed linen and sterling silver ear wires and jump rings

Medley Earrings

The second pair of polymer sticks have the same mod pattern, in red and black this time. Staying with the same theme, I went with black Onyx faceted round beads, used different silver plated bead spacers and sterling silver ear wires again. Everything is tied together with sterling silver wires finished with messy wraps

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day


  1. I was off to a late start with my earrings for this challenge too. I only finished making them yesterday. Yours are fabulously chic. The black and white pair could easily be a "go-to" pair for accessorizing lots of outfits.

  2. Thanks Tammy. I was just checking out your post too

  3. I love that pattern in the polymer clay sticks! Perfect for the challenge without getting too crazy.

    1. Thanks Sarajo. I do agree with you. That was my thought too when I first saw them
