AJE Earring Challenge

Sunday is the reveal for weeks 25 and 26 of the Art Jewelry Elements year long earring challenge.
I purchased some wonderful beads from Eclectic Prairie and got to work right away.
This first pair was very difficult to photograph because of the shape of the wavy beads, and the shine coming off them. 
'Midsummer's Night' made with Eclectic Prairie's brown wavy ceramic bead. They have a little bit of blue in them which was diffictlt to photograph. Also included are Czech  'calm' beads from Arte Bella Surplus, and Vintaj components.

'Happy Go Lucky' made with  Eclectic Prairie's colorful ceramic beads and Vintaj Components
I don't make mismatched earrings often but I thought these were fun.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please check out the AJE Blog to see more earrings.

Beautiful earrings, Alice. I love Jenny's beads AND her awesome shop motto "Life is short. Buy the beads!"

Great earrings. Your mismatched pair are really fun! I'd never heard of Jenny before and I am always excited to get "introduced" to new bead artists! Thanks!

I love the color combo in your first pair and the subtle asymmetry in the second. Great job!
