This is the 2nd reveal of the Earring Challenge sponsored by the The Art Jewelry Elements team. AJE is sponsoring a year-long Earring Challenge in 2013. 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. For this reveal I created crescent moon earrings in a beautiful blue green color. They are also made with artisan ceramics by Marsha Neal Studio. They dangle 2 inches below the gold chain are light and comfortable to wear. I think that they have an earthy appearance to them. Simple, lovely, casual earrings!
I love the line curls in the ceramic. They add rich detail. Also, the blue green glaze that was used in them reminds me of water. I love to use materials that remind me of elements from nature. These earrings have two elements from nature --the moon and water.
|My earrings will be featured in a magazine!|
For the next reveal on Feb. 9 I plan using components from D7 Studio for one pair and components from Suburban Girl Studio for the second pair of earrings. Stop by then to see if I meet the challenge for 2 more pairs of earrings by then.
