AJE June Component Of the Month Reveal...

My apologies for posting a little late - things conspired against me somewhat this weekend but here we are at last...

This month our component creator was Jenny Davis-Reazor and she send us all a pair of lovely ceramic charms from this selection - mine being a pair with a flower design in a lovely blood red.

Having had a very hectic month with very little creative time I stuck with the easy option of making a pair of earrings. I love the contrast of the deep red and the milky white on jenny's charms and I wanted to keep an organic feel to my design so I went straight for my favourite chunky rustic pearls. I also found some faceted garnets which picked up the red nicely. A little wrapping with some bronze wire (I will oxidise these eventually but my LOS is at the bottom of a box somewhere between studios) and voila -nothing fancy but pretty none-the-less.

Many thanks to Jenny for her lovely charms and If you'd like to see what the rest of the team created just use the links below.

  1. I love them! Love the big chunky pearls you used!

  2. Oh Lesley you know I love when you throw in pearls to your designs! I know about the hectic too! Oh peace would be so nice!

  3. This is a lovely color combination, Lesley. The earrings are sooo pretty!

  4. Ooooooh. Pearls. And garnets. Those are both on my favorites list, and they go beautifully with Jenny's charms. Sooo pretty!!!

  5. Lovely. Infinitely wearable. I like the smooth pearl, the faceted garnet and the more crusty surface of the clay. A trio of textures.

    And my hats off to you for creating during renovations. Wow. Thanks for participating!!!

  6. Lesley, so pretty! Definitely would be a "go-to" pair for me!
