AJE Earring Reveal 2

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!
I am excited to say that I have removed the photo of my second pair of earrings and replaced it with a photo of some magazines because I just found out that the earrings were selected by a major beading magazine for the July 2013 issue.  SO HAPPY!  All I will say about these earrings is that they also have components made in by the Marsha Neal Studio.

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.
