Art Jewelry Elements Earring Reveal #4

Once again it's time to reveal the earrings that we have made in the last two weeks for the AJE earring challenge.

I have been experimenting with mismatched earrings because I like the look and it's easier because you don't have to make two of the same thing. However, you have to somehow balance the look so I will let you decide if I have done that our not.

These earrings have a lot of memories for me. I made the copper clay  charms a couple of years ago in a class at the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee with Gordon Uyehara, one of my favorite metal clay artists.

The wire wrap is 20 gauge silver wire and the pearls are wired on with 26 gauge silver.

I bought the string of pearls on a Yangtze River Cruise in China several years ago. Kirk and I and his mother went to China in a group of only ten people and had some wonderful experiences.

These earrings were made with hand made porcelain charms by the gals at Off Center Productions. I combined them with acrylic flowers that I set with silver head pins and findings.
I love how light the earrings are with the porcelain and acrylic.

Have a fantastic week!
