It is Reveal 7 of weeks 13 and 14 of the AJE Earrings challange and as usual I am behind schedule in posting for this blog hop. Have I told you how much fun it has been exploring the world of Art Jewelry Artisans and the Elements they create? Such lovely beads and components to bead with out there and it has been wonderful exploring them...
For this reveal I showcase Paper Beads made by Gillian McMurray. These are the two pairs I made from her beads...
Vintage Paris paper beads, each one individually coated with ultra thick embossing enamel and tipped in gold embossing powder. I used natural greek leather to hang them from and dangle two very lighweight Metallite gold-colored bicones from the two ends.
The second pair is made with her Ocean Wave paper beads, paired with some light blue Swarovski pearls and sterling silver findings. The beads are in shades of Turquoise, with silver and gold microbeads, coated with embossing enamel and tipped in silver powder.
Stop and check the wonderful selection of Paper beads made by Gillian, they make great earrings, they are so lightweight, unique and beautiful!
And enjoy your weekend!
And do not forget to stop by tomorrow to check my Bead Soup reveal.
