AJE Component of the Month - February Reveal

It's the end of another month (already?) and that means it's time for another AJE Component of the Month (COM) reveal. This months components were these beautiful copper clay pieces byMelissa Meman featuring one of her own  textural designs and the I got  the rectangular pair to play with.

My original intention was to split the pair and  make to separate items but time and energy have been against me this month so in the end I opted to stick with earrings. I always love the combination of turquoise and copper so I used a pair of lampwork headpins from Maryse Fritzsch Thillens to create some drops for the bottom of the earrings.

 I then added some tiny turquoise beads to some ear wires for a little extra lift and that's it - job done. Very simple but I think the embellishments set of Melissa's charms, which are and should be the star of the show very well. Apologies for the colour on this picture which seems to fade during the uploading process no matter what I do.

Many thanks to Melissa for providing these lovely pieces to work with. To see what the rest of the AJE team and our guest designers have made just use the links below:
