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

Inspired Art Deco Earrings

The folks at Art Bead Scene Studio feature beautiful artwork every month, and invite their readers to create art beads, and art-bead-incorporating jewelry, inspired by this artwork. July’s inspiration is Art forms in Nature, Plate 85, Ascidiae, by Ernst Haeckel. Haeckel's work was interesting indeed, and what blew me away was his incredibly stylized representations… Continue reading Inspired Art Deco Earrings
