We're All Ears Challenge Reveal

So  I consider these earrings to be somewhat Serendipitous because I got a special order for these components. While I'm in the process of making them I take a look at the We're All Ears Reveal today and I thought...the shape and texture of these earrings actually mirrors the challenge picture in some ways so off I went!


I had a short piece of Sari Silk that had beautiful muted colors in Autumn shades that reminded me of the colors of the Canyon.


So I wrapped the Silk around the top of the components and decided a tiny bit of sparkle would be a good addition so I roughly added the seed beads in the same colors around the silk.

I think I'll call these earrings Serendipity!

I'm very happy with the results and I think I'm going to try to make more with different colors!!!

These earrings are available to purchase HERE.
These components are available HERE.

Thank you!

  10. Love the components (and that a lot of your components are popping up in the challenges this month!). I also really like the way you wrapped the silk. I am always wanting to use my stash but never think of doing things like this. It really works well and brings a tactile experience in. Thank you for participating in the Earrings Everyday We're All Ears challenge. Check back on the blog on September 4th for the next inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin
