AJE Earring Challenge - Reveal 1

I'm taking part in the AJE earring challenge to make a pair of earrings every week for the whole of 2013. The earrings will be revealed bi-weekly with a selection featured on the AJE Blog.

These are the earrings i made for the first two weeks...


These feature my own handmade bronze angel's wings charms which have been patinated with soft blue and opal and teamed with gorgeous lampwork beads by Sally Carver that have tiny beads of silver encase in the clear class and are wrapped in bronze wire. Available in my Etsy shop now.


This pair are great fun with a lovely sense of movement - again featuring my own handmade bronze charms suspended from bronze wire and accented with Czech glass beads and bronze fittings. All earwires are hypo allergenic Niobium. Available in my Etsy shop now.

  13. The Art Jewelry Elements team is bringing a new creative opportunity for 2013. AJE is sponsoring a year-long Earring Challenge in 2013. The challenge will be broken up into quarterly sections, so interested folks can try it out for 13 weeks at a time. They are challenging artisans to create one pair of earrings a week. All earring designs have to feature at least one artisan component, such as a handmade charm or bead. The artisan components may be made by the artisan or by another artist.
