Mismatched Monday & A Challenge!

The leaves are changing colors and the temperature is cooling down here in New Jersey. It's hard not to be inspired with autumn in full swing.
Even the decaying leaves and hints of color here and there are beautiful. That's why this weeks earrings are inspired by nature...
Brown stoneware charms: Suburban Girl Studio LLC
Ceramic dot bead: Elaine Ray
Lucite round: The Beadin' Path
Chain: Primitive Earth Beads
Link: Michael's
Brass findings/bronze wire by Vintaj: Fusion Beads
Real leaf: My backyard   ;-)
Now the title of this post mentions a challenge...  My next Mismatched Monday (10/29) will feature Halloween earrings and I'd like all of you to join in!  Make a pair of mismatched Halloween earrings (featuring art beads/components) and write a blog post about them on 10/29 and then link it up here (there will be a linky tool that day).  As an added bonus, I will randomly select one of the participants to receive a Suburban Girl brown stoneware pendant!

What are you waiting for? Get to work on those mismatched Halloween earrings!
