Not only do these look good enough to eat, but they should supply your entire day's requirement for Vitamin C!
The teardrop-shaped faceted beads are carnelians. The rondelles are wound glass that match the carnelians PERFECTLY. (I brought the carnelians to a local bead shop, to look for matching beads for a different design I was planning on. But when I found these orange rondelles, I couldn't pass them up. As soon as I saw them I could visualize the earrings I would have to make.)
The earrings may look simple, but I spent a long time this weekend trying to figure out how to combine the two beads just right to create a cohesive design.
The earrings are now available at my online store.
I've been really good with this Design-a-day challenge, trying to create new jewelry designs and photograph them everyday. It's been a stretch but it's been good for me too. I've had a ton of ideas running through my head for a while, but I've never really took the time to start them. This challenge has really given me a kick in seat of the pants to get up and create!
Ah, but now I have a problem. I'm leaving for the next 3 days for a business trip. I've tried to work a little ahead - I've got some new items and I'm trying to take pictures. So we'll see if I can continue this while I'm gone.
