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

Elegant White Earrings

It's time for yet another reveal at Art Elements, and this month, Claire Fabian has thought of 'White' as the theme. I ran through my ever-growing to-do list of projects, wondering if white could be the star in any of them. In the end, as it happens more often than not, I made a brand… Continue reading Elegant White Earrings

Starry Earrings

I guess it's celestial object inspiration month for me. After the tiny comet earrings that I talked about recently, I made some tiny star earrings! I ended up using leftovers from previous projects for both earring pairs, so they manage to fit the theme of the We're All Ears Annual Use-Your-Leftovers challenge. (Thank you, Erin,… Continue reading Starry Earrings

Black Comet Earrings

A quick post about a quick pair of earrings that I made - I had some blackened translucent polymer clay left over from my image transfer attempts for the coasters that I made recently. I used these for a couple of charms, and made an earring pair by adding in a bunch of bead components… Continue reading Black Comet Earrings

Crackled Earrings

I finally used a couple of lentil-shaped hollow beads from the bunch of items that I'd created almost a year ago using crackled veneer. And what a charming pair of earrings they make! For these earrings, I tied strips from two different fabrics to a large jump ring that I passed through the top of… Continue reading Crackled Earrings

This month's We're All Ears Challenge at Earrings Everyday is all about Autumn. And of course, that means leaf shaped charms! 🙂 I used polymer clay, alcohol inks and Perfect Pearls for mine. The charms On a yellow-tinged white sheet of polymer clay, I stamped leafy textures from a texture sheet, from which I cut out… Continue reading Ode to Autumn Earrings | We’re All Ears Challenge

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
