The Black and White Challenge

These black and white pearls earrings are available in Bay Moon Design Etsy Story

Black and White Challenge:

  Design a piece of jewelry that uses only black and white in the design.  That's it!  Easy!  Right!?!
It can be elaborate or minimalist but only in black and white.
Exceptions To The Rules:
1.  wire, metal or chain in silver, copper, brass, bronze, white or black can be used
2.  crystal or crystal AB color beads can also be used to ACCENT the piece
Black and white can give a very elegant and classic look especially when pearls are involved.  I combined petite white coin pearls with black swarovski crystals and black and white czech beads.  There is a dainty flat sterling silver bead at the bottom of the coin pearl.  Simple and lovely earrings for a special event like a summer wedding!
A special thanks to Sally Russick our hostess!  Please visit all of our participants and see what was inspired by this challenge.

  2. Oh yes, I can so picture these beauties on a bride at a black and white wedding. Super!
