Polka Dot Earrings | We’re All Ears

It feels like it's been ages since I made earrings! And then, Erin announced her theme for the We're All Ears challenge of September, and it looked just too fun to not give a shot. The theme? Dotty. Or more specifically, polka dots. I have been trying to bring more bling to things I make.… Continue reading Polka Dot Earrings | We’re All Ears

Stormy Earrings | We’re All Ears

For this month's We're All Ears challenge, Erin chose Storms as the theme. Storms, being a force of nature, are hard not to get inspired by. 🙂 My polymer clay earrings are inspired by the torrential rain during a storm, and the gentle ripples from stray post-storm raindrops hitting a puddle. As usual, the design… Continue reading Stormy 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

Spring’s Here Earrings

New beginnings, and hope, inspired me very much, but other things in life landed in a heap on me, and I just didn't get the time to turn any of my ideas into reality. This month, life continues to be… Continue reading Spring’s Here Earrings

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

Sweet Dreams Earrings

Another month ends, and brings another Art Elements reveal with it. Lindsay Starr hosts this month's theme - Moon. At first, I thought this was perfect to try out gel prints with a recently accidentally bought gelli plate (we found we'd ordered a round one instead of a square one.) But I still have hit-or-miss… Continue reading Sweet Dreams Earrings

We’re All Ears – Living Coral

This month's inspiration for the We're All Ears challenge at Earrings Everyday is Living Coral, the Pantone Color of this Year. Coral has its place in traditional Indian earrings, and after many trials and errors, some elements of traditional jewelry inevitably ended up in mine as well. I first mixed some orange and a lot… Continue reading We’re All Ears – Living Coral
