{We're All Ears} December Creative Challenge (Серьги по заданию, декабрь)


     Hello friends! It's time to reveal my earrings made for this month challenge «We’re All Ears”.
     This time, Erin suggested we make some earring using any leftover beads.
     I don’t know why, but this challenge turned out to be difficult for me. Somehow, I felt lost and wasn’t sure where to begin. I looked at my desk, at half-finished earring here and there and nada…


     The only things that I wanted to play with were these periwinkle faceted glass cabochons. I acquired them quite a lone time ago, and honestly didn’t know how to use them until this challenge. So, I came up with this design: (1) I glued cabs to the scalloped metal setting; (2) I attached the links to the filigree cones, and wrapped a piece of wire with seedbeads around them.

     I like the earring: to me they have this “antique” vibe. I can picture a noble lady of the past wearing them. Thank you for visiting and commenting.
    Please, check out my Etsy store for some unique & one-of-a-kind vintage and handmade jewelry. Yours, Oksana.

  3. I like your earrings very much. Very Victorian vibe. That blue is so clear and brilliant. I am glad you could play along even if it was a challenge. I know for me I always need some spark to get me going so I completely understand. Hope to see you play along in the new year! Enjoy the day! Erin

  5. What a great solution for those cabs! I do think these turned out great AND you got to use something that was lingering on your desk. Well done!!
