Stacked Earrings Challenge #4

Hey it's time again. Stacked Earrings Challenge #5. Five beading buddies in three different countries (Sweden, United Kingdom and USA) sending each others a group of beads inspiring for making earrings, preferably in the stacked style. Make as many as you wish. Use at least three beads from the lot in each earring.


Here are the beads Rebecca Anderson sent us this time. What a lovely lot. So much colour. And many flowers. So very Rebecca. So inspiring!

I ended up making four pairs. But I do have a few more laid out as half ready ideas on my work table.



These are my own favourites of the ones I made. I've been wearing them several times. 

My daughter Arabella likes these ones best.

I'd say these one are most Rebbecca-esque of the ones I made. I mean I sense her presence in the beads and in the color scheme.

No there is nothing wrong with your screen, the waxed linen cord is of two different colours. It was a sort of deliberate mistake, since I made them over two different days, and day two I realized I'd run out of the darker color. But you know I like semi-assymetry … so I let it stay like that.

-------

Every time we have our releases I love seeing what we all made with the same lot of beads. It is such an interesting test of and tribute to creativity.

Earrings

Hello there,
It's been a while since I posted here on my blog. Lots of things are going on in my private life at the moment, so my activity in social media unfortunately suffers. Still I am so happy for the moments when I get around making jewelry. Some of you might have noticed I am now a proud member of the Earrings Everyday blog. I post there regularly twice a month. Please check out some new earrings I've made over the last couple of months.

Perky opaque apple green glass rounds
Vintage Swarovski pale sky blue facetted drops
Messy wrapped oxidized copper wire
