Challenge Week 48

As the end of my challenge draws near I look back and find that I’ve tried new things and have stretched my creative ability. I don’t think I would have made some of the items that I’ve featured without this challenge pushing me.  The earrings that I made for today’s challenge is one of those times when I have gone outside my comfort zone.

 I took an item that I found in a jewelry store.  I had no idea what I would do with it but like the look and feel of it.  When I got it to my work room and put it with several different items I decided to combine it with a Swarovski Rivoli and came up with beautiful vintage-look earrings.  The backings on the Rivolis are made of antiqued copper and remind me of lace doilies.   I used the deep blue Rivolis to compliment the color of the copper.

These are one of a kind; I doubt you will see them in any other shop.
