On the blog Earrings Every day they have issued a challenge. To create a pair of earrings inspired by the photo below. Damselflies in love.
Don't those colours just scream SPRING. Well they do to me as I am heartily sick of winter this year.
I was so enamoured with the colours in this photo that I dug into my stash and chose some beads that seemed to visually represent this photo.
I decided to not focus on the heart shape and instead re-created the linear connection.
I used Howlite spears/daggers (top drilled,) to represent the wings; some blue-green glass teardrops, the body; and green dyed howlite for the head /grass colours and pink shell round beads. It turns out to be a split-complementary colour scheme. Isn't mother nature clever?
Using 20 and 26 ga silver artistic wire I created these 3-1/2 " long dangles.
I think I may keep these for myself.
pop on over to the blog as they are having a bloghop showcasing the creations of some very talented artists.
Enjoy the tour and don't forget to leave some comment love.
I'm linking up to Humblebeads Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge as well.
