Earrings Everyday ~ September challenge

Erin's fascination of the the Macro world
and her own photos serve
as our inspiration this month.
The textures and the earthy colors are so appealing.
You can read more about it on her blog.
 So many directions I could have taken 
but I settled on these to represent
my own little macro world.
 Vintaj natural brass tag blanks,
Decoemboss die - Dragonfly pond,
and Vintaj paints.
Czech leaves and Czech caffe latte
groved rectangle beads.
Chrysolite opal Swarovski bicones.
Silver and gold plated wire.
I'm not particularly bothered by the mixed metal colors.
I rather like it.

Now why not check out and see
what the other participants came up with.

Super fun earrings, Terri! I bet they have some great swing to them. I'm liking the mix of elements and the funky textured Czech glass rectangles.

I am also a mixed metal fan. There seem to be many of us. You used such unique beads and components to create some truly innovative earrings. I love them! I've never seen grooved rectangular beads like that. Very cool!

Fiona Robertson said...
