Week 3: Earring a Day Challenge

Despite having a case of the sniffles this week, I perservered by making one earring a day. My hands are itching to make bangles and long beaded necklaces, but I'm gonna see this earring thing out to the end. And since I came into the game on the 7th of January, I'll be earring-a-day'ing it until February 7th to make up for it. So, here are the week's spoils:

Sunday

Sunday brought simple elegance. I love the rich tone of the faceted purple glass and the simplicity of the Magnesite button.

 Monday
This earring revolved around the large disc between the blue and yellow beads. I love the whimsy of this pair.

Tuesday 
After staring at a soda can for a while, I decided to make these fan earrings. I love the simplicity of the design.

Wednesday 
These were a wirework exercise. I really like the colors, but am not sure the copper works.

Thursday 
Thursday brought fashion inspiration from my own closet. I bought this cute peasant blouse from Macy's and wanted some earrings to go with it.

It was nice to be back with needle, thread, and little seed beads. I really like how these starbursts came out.

Friday 
This is the result of sick + Nyquil + staring at mixed beads. Not necessarily my faves, but at least it's a pair of earrings.

Saturday 
This is a variation of Thursday and Friday's earrings. Feeling a little better, I had a fun time making these funky mandala earrings.


Well, that's it for week 3. Be on the lookout for what's up Week 4.
