AJE Earring Challenge - 1st Reveal...

but I hope not a dollar short!  What is the AJE Earring Challenge?  Over at Art Jewelry Elements, the gauntlet has been thrown down!  Make 52 pairs of earrings...seems like a lot, but it is only 1 a week...easy, right! Unless you are a procrastinator, like me ;)  The catch is that they must contain an art bead or component and you must credit the artist, even if it is yourself!

I started out on Week 1 with sterling paddles and lampwork glass disks from the amazing Sue Kennedy of favorite part of these, aside from the obvious lovely lampwork, are my hand wrought molten silver drops I learned to make from Stacie Florer at the last ArtBliss workshop!

For week 2, I created a pair from pretty, floral blue and green ceramic charms from the lovely and talented LeAnn Weih of Summers Studio...she is such a sweetheart!  I have had these in my stash for a while because I wanted to do them justice...what do you think?  I added Czech glass flowers and some sweet Thai Hill Tribe silver flowers as well as my hand wrought earwires.

You can visit other bloggers who are participating in the challenge by going here...or find all the beautiful earrings in one place on Pinterest!


  1. Love that firdt pair, but the second reminds me of spring. Any reminder of spring on this cold and snowy day is a very welcome sight!

  2. Very pretty earrings! especially love the whimsy in the second pair!!

  3. Both of your pairs of earrings are exceptional. And I'm torn. The second pair is really more my 'style' but that first pair just leaves me speechless. You've got so much talent, it's really astounding!


I love reading your comments!!!
