Art Jewelry Elements November Component of the Month Reveal




One of my favorite blogs, Art Jewelry Elements, just happens to do a monthly component reveal where one of their contributors will make up a component then they all will design a piece around it.  The best part is that they invite different designers in to play.  I was lucky enough to be one of those designers this time around.

What was being offered was these beautiful seed bead rings made by Kristen Stevens.  Aren't they lovely and so out of my wheel house that I was jumping for joy when my name was picked.  The ones that were sent me was the Terra Dark Denim.

Since they came in a pair and I have really been working on designing earrings lately, I decided to make up a pair of ear wires and grabbed a pair of lampwork headpins made by Earth Shine.



I just love this pair of earrings because this is the first time that I haven't used something that was commercial be it earwires or jump rings.  And I want to thank Art Jewelry Elements and Kristen for the opportunity to push my limits yet again.

Now be sure to click here to see what everyone else made with their wonderful rings.

  7. I love your gorgeous earrings. Those stunning headpins were a perfect choice to compliment the rings, and your earwires are clever. These are real show stoppers! Those colors!!! I guess this reinforces the idea that avoiding commercial components has great rewards.

  17. These are GORgeous! It is like the headpins were made for the beaded rings or vice versa. Very very well done :-)
