Today is the First Reveal!
I have joined the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge and today, January 20, 2013, is the first time we are to show what we made so far.
The idea is to make one pair of earrings a week this year. That is great for me as I tend to shy away from earrings. I think it is because you have to make two of the same thing. I have a real hard time duplicating something I have made.
I know, it's practice, practice, practice!
I made these earrings from steel beads that I opened and enameled using Barbara Lewis' Painting with Fire method. I added black seed beads, 8 mm glass disks and handmade sterling silver ear wires.
I made these earrings with 20 gauge sterling silver wire for the base and the twisted wire bead is 22 gauge sterling. They are great for winter.
Well, Kirk and I are in the Florida Keys now so this post will be short. We got some great photos snorkeling today at Grecian Reef out of Key Largo. I will share them later.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
