Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

My recent artistic inclinations are towards art journaling, so it's a different sort of creative high when I make the occasional jewelry. 🙂 And what better to motivate me to work on some earrings than the We're All Ears challenge! Erin's prompt for April is based on our current reality - since most of us… Continue reading Be Free Earrings | We’re All Ears

Dotted Earrings | We’re All Ears

It's time for another We're All Ears challenge! For February's theme, Erin has drawn inspiration from artist Jon Foreman (aka Sculpt the World) who creates ephemeral land art. (Do check out his fantastic creations sometime!) I read about the artist and checked out his work, and what resonated with me (other than the beauty of… Continue reading Dotted Earrings | We’re All Ears

Henna on Blue Earrings | We’re All Ears

A brand new year means checking out Colors of the Year from various sources. 🙂 And the We're All Ears January challenge has done exactly that - Erin provided a list of Colors of 2020, and asked us to base our earrings on one or more of these colors. The colors are: Classic Blue -… Continue reading Henna on Blue Earrings | We’re All Ears

Ruby Steel Earrings | We’re All Ears

It's time for yet another We're All Ears challenge. Erin had an interesting theme this month - names from a random name generator! She generated a list of names for us to choose from; or, she said, we could generate names on our own. And make earrings that suit the name. For my earrings, I… Continue reading Ruby Steel Earrings | We’re All Ears

Wire-Form Inspired Statement Earrings

May's inspiration for the We're All Ears challenge at Earrings Everyday is Wire forms. Specifically, wire forms by artist Ruth Asawa. Erin Prais-Hintz, who hosts the challenge, discovered Asawa from the Google Doodle celebrating the prolific artist, and, inspired by her wire art forms, thought it would be a challenging inspiration for this month. And… Continue reading Wire-Form Inspired Statement Earrings

Icicle Earrings

This month, Erin thought of the theme Frozen (no, not the movie, though she says that works too) for the We're All Ears Challenge. With the Polar Vortex wreaking havoc on temperatures, one needs to use the snow and frost for inspiration. I live in more temperate climates, so I used the beautiful winter pictures… Continue reading Icicle Earrings

Paper/Fabric Bead Earrings

My previous use of fabric had me thinking of using it again for an easy pair of earrings. At first, I thought I'd make fabric beads, but in my stash search, I found paper calling to me as well. In the end, I made paper beads to which I added fabric strips, and made earrings… Continue reading Paper/Fabric Bead Earrings

Icy Blue Earrings

This month's We're All Ears challenge on Earrings Everyday goes a bit meta - it is inspired by another contest! 🙂 The original contest was Circles are the New Triangles, and was hosted by Spoonflower (where you can create custom-designed textiles - oooh!) Erin at Earrings Everyday rightly thought that the designs are fun inspirations… Continue reading Icy Blue Earrings

Simple/Elaborate | ABS Challenge

The folks at Art Bead Scene Studio have extended their July challenge into August, and as a result, there's no August picture. However, a while ago, they'd published their intended set of pictures for the whole year. Since I'm already done with July, I thought I'd try my hand at August from that earlier set,… Continue reading Simple/Elaborate | ABS Challenge

Inspired by Iced Tea | We’re All Ears Challenge

The folks at Earrings Everyday host a themed monthly challenge - We're All Ears - with a reveal and blog hop on the third Friday of the month. For July, we get to be inspired by our favorite summer drink! Doesn't that sound like fun! 🙂 It's pretty difficult to think of a summer drink… Continue reading Inspired by Iced Tea | We’re All Ears Challenge
