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.
