Earrings Everyday ~ March Challenge


The Amazing Macro photos by  Martin Amm
served as this months inspiration
 for the Earrings Everyday challenge.
Focusing on the dragonfly's body, I put two of them
 together to form these hoop earrings.
But I really wanted to make a pair that 
had some of that iridescence.
These Dichroic Grace lampwork 
beads did the trick for me.
The twisted bugle beads catch the light in a 
similar way that the dew does.
I also wanted to do something to represent all
 that dew on the dragonfly's eyes.
 I went with these hammered links and bead caps that
I've been hoarding...
... along with these  bumpy lampwork beads
 by Patricia Venaleck.

Thanks Erin for another fantastic Challenge.

Feel free to check out what the other
 participants were inspired to make.

Super fun earrings... I like that the first two really have the same shape/feel of the dragonfly bodies. The bumpy glass in the last pair is just what I had in my mind's eye, but not in my stash. :)

Such a great range of earrings from the inspiration. I was totally hoping for some bubbly beads in my stash but not much luck. Love the clever design of the first pair. Thanks for joining in the We're All Ears challenge! Enjoy the day! Erin

I love the casual feel of the first pair and the dragonfly prop in the photo (perfect). The second pair have the PERFECT shape of the insect and the wings are so cool. Those amaze me!!! The lampwork beads on the third pair are awesome. Each pair captures a different aspect if the photos. Love them all! Bravo!!!!!
