AJE Earring Challenge

Art Jewelry Elements

It's time once again for the Art Jewelry Elements Earring Challenge. We are  at weeks 35 and 36!

'Rain Forest Mist'
Made with  brass ovals cut from brass sheet, then patinated with a vinegar and salt solution. Lampwork beads from Whitney Street Studio, and Vintaj components

You can see how I made them here.

'Infinity Pool'
Strips of brass sheet formed on a baseball bat, Ranger Verdigris Patina and Vintaj components.

As always I enjoy your comments.  Please stop by the AJE blog  and the AJE Pinterest site to see more wonderful earrings.

Alice, I think your "Rain Forest Mist" earring have got to be my most favorite ones you've created yet! I love them! : ) (I'm looking out at our misty forest and thinking, yes, you caught the mood!)

Alice, your earrings are both beautiful - and the patinas are just my favorite color. I especially love the oval/domed earrings. Your happy accident turned it to some incredibly stunning earrings!
