AJE Earring Challange #15

These beautiful blue lampwork beads, the ceramic leaves, and the "Earring Creations" themselves above, are all made by Jennifer.  A little added Swarovski sparkle and some Sari Silk just make for a fun pair of earrings!

I made these copper earrings by adding lampwork flowers by Steve Rhoades of Bokomo Designs.  I attached them with lampwork headpins by Jennifer...a little hand-dyed ribbon brings them together.

AJE Earring Challenge Reveal #14

These earrings are made by my granddaughter, Gianna.  I must say, she mixed up a pretty cool pair of earrings!  She cut, pounded, and torched her findings, then crystallized and added a lampwork bead made by her mom, Jennifer.  These fun earrings are one-of-a-kind!

I most definetly got "hooked" in the bird's nest class!  These earrings are copper with moss agate eggs.  Dangling from the copper chain are Jennifer's beautiful lampwork leaves.

Bird's Nest Pendant Class

What a fun class of building unique and colorful little bird's nest pendants!  Kristin Girard of Kristin's Laboratory taught us today that with a little wire and patience, you can creat an original work of art!  One thing for sure, you'll want to make more!
