{We're All Ears} February Creative Challenge (Серьги по заданию, февраль)

        Hello friends! It's time to reveal my earrings made for the monthly challenge «We’re All Ears”. This time, our inspiration comes from colorful patchwork quilts.

      It was one of my dreams to make a patchwork quilt from scratch. A couple years ago, I attended a workshop led by a very talented quilter, and made my first quilt. HERE.
     Okay, back to earrings: For me, to come up with a design for “patchwork” earrings was a bit challenging, but I did it anyway.

#1: Gypsy Queen
#2 Free Spirit

I made two pairs of earrings. They remind me of Gypsy style jewelry: fun, chunky, and colorful. I used some wooden beads which come from a bracelet I bought several years ago. The earrings turned out very colorful. They can definitely lighten the mood.

      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.

  5. I love both pairs of hoops... especially the ones with the fringe! They are so colorful and fun! I found this one challenging too.
