{We're All Ears} April Creative Challenge (Серьги по заданию, апрель)

      Hello friends! It's time to reveal my earrings which I’ve made for the monthly challenge «We’re All Ears”).
     This month, our host Erin suggested: “use the EGG as your Muse for April”. Originally, I was going to cross-stitch a small Ukrainian pattern on a piece of Aida and then wrap it around a metal disc and use for my earrings.
    I have a book with tons of Ukrainian cross-stitch patterns: they would perfectly mimic Pysanky’s egg design. But, unfortunately, I didn’t have time to do it. Maybe, next time…
     Here are the earrings I’ve made:

     “Pretty Little Eggs” earrings. To “make an egg”, I used yellow glass faceted beads which I slid on a headpin between the two white plastic bead cups; I also attached a wire coiled link to each egg to make the design more interesting.
     Thank you for visiting and commenting. Please, check out my Etsy store for more unique & one-of-a-kind vintage and handmade jewelry. Yours, Oksana.
