Has it been two weeks already?
It's time again to reveal the earrings that I made for the Art Jewelry Elements Challenge. I can't believe that time has gone so fast. We were on vacation in Florida part of the time so that might have had something to do with the time warp.
First of all, I made these earrings to see if I could. I wanted to make post earrings and I wanted to see if I could make the tree of life small enough to be earrings. I had made a pendant a few years before and I loved it.

The earrings and pendant don't match as I can't wear copper in my ears. I turn green.
Earrings #4I made these enameled earrings at the Painting with Fire Studio of Barbara Lewis in St Petersburg, Florida when we were on our vacation. They are 24 gauge copper, punched out of copper sheet and forged then enameled with opaque white. The cabochon is punched, dapped, and enameled in opaque Robin's Egg Blue. I applied a decal and then connected the pieces by firing with clear enamel.
I really enjoy making earrings each week for this challenge. It gives me a chance to try different techniques. I believe more metal work is in my future and also some resin work.
Happy Super Bowl!
