Welcome to another Bead Table Wednesday! I am pleased to report that I have a new pair of earrings on my table this week. This new pair was challenging. I went through several tries before I got the design right! The placement of the hole in the ceramic was a challenge that I need to conquer because I knew I wanted to connect it to an eyepin with a bead on it. I thought about using Irish waxed linen, silver jump rings, silver wire and a few other possibilities. I finally decided to use some flat sided sterling silver wire that I have been hoarding. I am pleased with the results. I think that blue usually looks best with silver so that was an easy decision. I also happened to have 2 of these cobalt blue vintage beads left from repurposing an old pair of clip on earrings from the 1950's. I love how the cobalt blue beads accentuate the blue in Marsha Neal's gorgeous ceramics.
