Earring Challenge Reveal 8 - Weeks 15 & 16/52

Welcome to the 8th reveal for the AJE challenge - how are you all doing...still going strong with your designs? I think I've just about caught up with my backlog and hopefully you're all gaining inspiration from each others designs.

If you're blogging about your designs then don't forget to add your link at the bottom of this post. Today's post is a bit of a joint effort and whilst I'm writing it the featured entries have been chose by Linda Landig.

First up are these pretty earrings by 'Sundance Gems' called 'Summer Skies' using Paper beads by Gillian McMurray, light blue Swarovski pearls and sterling silver earwires. I've used Gillian's paper beads myself and not only do they look great but they are light as a feather so a great choice for anyone who can't wear heavy earrings.

Next we have a great fun pair by Claire Lockwood of 'Something To Do Beads' using polymer clay House beads which she made herself - aren't they cute...?

Linda's third choice are these  hand-cut and enameled copper shapes by Angela Gruenke of 'Contents Jewelry' which have a lovely organic feel.

And finally we have a pair of very pretty hand stamped earrings by Alicia Marinache of 'All Pretty Things' made of  Aluminum flat wire and bronze wire. I bet this is another pair that are wonderfully light to wear too.

Once again thanks to everyone for posting your designs. We will continue to feature a few pairs of earrings every other Sunday and the best way to get your earrings picked is to make great earrings using handmade art components, and to take gorgeous photos. Don't forget to pin them in good time either as these posts often get written a couple of days in advance.

Don't forget to post your links below and the next reveal will be on Sunday 12th May.

  1. Great stuff! Thanks for featuring my earrings. I need to get to work on more - think that's a job for today!

  2. Beautiful earrings!!! It amazes me how there are so many participating yet the designs are all different.

  3. Great picks! I love all those earrings! Great job, ladies!

  4. Thank you for featuring my aluminum earrings: you're correct, they're very light and fun to wear :)

  5. Great earrings! I cannot believe the first ones are paper beads! They don't look like paper...

    The house beads are darling and the enameled ones look fun to wear.

    The last pair would be great for the neighbor girl who is like one of my kids :-)
