For the March challenge of We're All Ears, we are going monochrome - black + white. 

Mix all the patterns. 
Throw in a pop of a color if you like .(and don't forget, metal is a color, too!
Play with scale and texture.
Most important

Have fun!

I decided to mix pearls, black lacquered wood, and sterling for a quick and easy pair of earrings.  I used thin and delicate silver keishi pearls and black lacquered wood beads along with the long silver kidney wires to create unique earrings with an edgy fashion look. The black wood lacquered beads, and silver add contrast and texture to the monchromatic earrings.

I am anxious to see what everyone creates this month. Hop over to Erin Prais-Hintz's blog "Earrings Every Day"  to see what our hostess came up with for this challenge. From there you can follow links to other participants' creations.


  1. What a fabulous take on this challenge. I love the slivers of beads stacked by color to give each of the colors (or lack thereof) a more powerful punch. Nicely done!

  2. Great job on creating such a fun pair of earrings with pearls. A design with pearls does not have to look boring

    1. Thank you! I agree that pearls don't have to be boring.

  3. This pair has a strong contrast and diversified texture that I love very much!

  4. I love stick pearls and a stack of them is a great way to go! Thanks for joining in the We're All Ears challenge at Earrings Everyday! Enjoy the day! Erin

  5. Love the combination of the pearls and lacquard black components! Beautiful earrings!

  6. Very nice! They remind me of the stacks of rocks one finds at the beach - the pearls fit in perfectly!

  7. Love your stacked earrings! Great idea!
