This month I have the pleasure of participating the April AJE Component of the Month Reveal. Jen Cameron of Glass Addictions gave me the choice of selecting a murrini (pictured above) or spiral (pictured below) lampwork headpin component on 18g copper wire.

I received two murrini lampwork headpin on 18g copper wire made from Jen. My assignment was to create something using one or both of the headpins. Since murrini headpins look best viewed from the top, I took that into consideration when coming up with a design. I created a pair of earrings that show off the copper headpins.
I created these handmade artisan pink flower earrings with purple highlights on copper earwires. The petals of the flowers are purple in the center and pink on the outside. They are handmade and enameled. The very center of the flowers has Jen's component made of pink and lime green glass on copper wire. The flowers hang from copper wire with what looks like a vine made from copper. Copper earwires are used. These are long earrings that are 2.5 inches from the curve at the top of the copper earwire.
I love how these look like pretty pink flowers hanging from a long vine. I also like how easy it is to work with the 20 gauge copper wire. I found it very pliable so making the vines was not difficult.
Thank you Jen for your lovely components! Please visit all of the participants of this reveal and see what they did. I know I can't wait to visit them.
