Reveal 5 - AJE Earrings Challenge - Week 9 and 10

It is week 9 and 10 of the AJE Earrings challange and I am behind schedule in blogging my post for the blog hop. It has been a crazy month, sick with the flu, end of the quarter so busy at work, clean house get ready for company here for spring break, bead soup to cook... but inspite of it all the AJE earrings challenge has been a delight. I love that we reveal every two weeks, and it earrings, not too complicated, so many beautiful beads and art jewelry elements what's not to love. It's good for the body and soul... making earrings!

These are the two pairs I posted this fortnight.

I used a pair of lampwork lentils beads hand made by Joyce of Joycelo with an opal periwinkle background, green leaves and variegated yellow flowers on both sides. The beads are so beautiful, that they did not need much more in the way of adornment, just 14K gold fill levelbacks, some chain, and a Hyacinth Swarovski crystal.

The second pair was made using a pair of enamelled butterflies from Gardanne Beads. The orange butterflies are paired with white center Sapphire Venetian glass beads, its almost as if the butterflies are flying against a light blue spring sky!

Please stop by and check out all the other earrings made with very creative AJEs on Pinterest.
And enjoy your weekend!
