Welcome to Reveal 5, Weeks 9-10/52 of the AJE Earring Challenge. I am playing catch-up this week after preparing and having a total knee replacement on my right knee, I got behind for weeks 7 and 8, and did not blog for those weeks. So this week's blog post will have 4 pair of earrings using an art bead for part of the design. I will start with week 9:
I wire wrapped silver plated hoops with blue crystals and added aqua teardrop faux sea glass, connecting with blue sari silk ribbon. Following is week 10:
Going back to week 7, ceramic leaf components by Janel Goolsby were highlighted with antiqued copper spacers, wire, jump rings, and ear wires that complemented the earth tone gemstone beads that laddered the design.
For week 8, Marsha Neal art beads were color co-ordinated with brass components colored with Lisa Liddy's Metal Me This Plum Patina and copper earwires.
