Day 31. Thanks for all the kind words for yesterday’s bright yellow earrings! I am defining having a lot of fun with this daily creative challenge, and finding new ways to make earrings has been really flowing lately. I think that is one of the main things I love about a daily creative challenge – ideas spark more ideas and you never know where they will go. Anyway, enjoy today’s pair of earrings, again inspired by mismatch and long dangles!
Day 30. I keep getting drawn back to making mis-matched earrings. I love the same-same but different quality of this pair. Also loving the bright yellow glass.
Day 29. I love that Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020 is Classic Blue, and that it looks a lot like Skyy Vodka bottles! I also love the story behind the colour, and the reason it was chosen this year. This colour instills calm and highlights our desires for a stable foundation on which to build as we cross into a new era.
Day 28. Another variation on the pearls I used yesterday, this time with some Skyy Vodka beads sprinkled in between.
Day 27. More new pearls! I had a lot of fun looking at pearls last week and dreaming about what I might make with them. I am also looking forward to adding them to some necklaces, but for now I am enjoying making earrings with them. I love this combo with the Moet champagne bottle earrings, classic and classy!
Day 26. I made the small dichroic glass beads many years ago, and didn’t end up using them for much, so they have been sitting in a takeaway container, waiting for the perfect project. I think They found their calling today! Loving the new pearls, and can’t wait to explore even more ways of using them to complement my handmade glass beads.
Day 25. New pearls! These earrings look amazing on, all of the pearls turn around and do their own thing with how they sit, so it’s really quite spectacular! I have put the Hendricks Gin Limited Release purple beads with them, and I think they become a classic wear all the time pair of earrings!
Day 24. These enamel copper tubes were leftover from a project last year, but they looked so pretty with the recycled glass beads made from a Banrock Station wine bottle, and now I want to make more in different colours! I love the simplicity, colour and the style of these long earrings.
Day 23. Today’s earrings feature beads made from the Hendricks Gin Limited Release purple bottle, and a Banrock Station wine bottle embellished with purple frit. Love the contrast with the matt and shiny finishes, and the little silver sparkle in between is also a new addition to my earrings!
Day 22. Sorry, didn’t have access to the internet yesterday, but I did make these earrings. The beads are made from Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray gin bottles.
