Week 51

These earrings are very cool. I was looking for natural beads for a commissioned necklace I'm making and came across these. They are Mahogany seed pods and I love them! They are very light and I flanked them with wooden beads, vintage sequins and gold plated spacers. You can find the strangest things when you're looking for something else.

Week 50

This was a "Purple" week for the Challenge earrings. This pair is made from some of my favorite beads. Rubberized acrylic swirls, with cut outs, make for very light beads, even though they are large.

Check out the rest of Week 50 on the Earrings 365 page.

Undulations - Violet Family

Here is another one. I decided to use a book page from my very old Gray's Botany, hence the name Violet Family.

It was mostly rainy and dark today until around 3 p.m. and I wanted some color in my life. After making my daily earrings, I wanted to try something I found on the web last night. This is it. I'm very pleased with my first "Undulation" and will be making more and adding them to my Z'oodles.

This is an excellent practice for shading and color placement. The next one will have every other "row" the opposite color way. These are very fun.

I won!

Over at they had a little contest to see who could come up with the most creative pictures that also included their logo. I Won!! Here is the picture that got me voted Number 1!

I love this picture of the overburdened postman. All those years of playing in the mail art community really paid off. I was very surprised because I rarely win anything, and some of the other entries were pretty good.

Ok...this time I did forget

Once you get out of a habit, it's very hard to get back into it. So, here I am trying to acquire my posting habit again. I just posted Weeks 48 and 49 and here are a couple of pairs from those weeks.

June 5th

I have only 20 more days of this challenge. Yah! Stayed tuned for more earrings. This week seems to be a purple week. That is quite appropriate, at 50 you get to wear red and purple.
