Dragon flies, new shapes, challenges and bead mojo!

On earrings everyday they started a monthly earring challenge. They show you an inspirational image and the goal is (like the name of the blog already indicates ^^) to create earrings!

Here are mine. I went for structures, shapes and colours. Can you find all the matching details? ;)

The orange glass beads are old recycled ones I found in a second hand shop here in leipzig. They have some bowls with parts of broken jewelery inside. Yes, I nearly took all glass beads they had. Some of them are a little bit worn or old pressed glas but I love to work with something that already has a history. And hey, the orange is striking!

And then I added czech glass beads (the small green and big blue ones with picasso finish), some cotton thread, metal beads and the small blue beads are swarowski wax beads. 

I never ever worked with this shape before so thanks for the inspiration! :)

The inspirational image!

And just to add a little bit more interactions... This is also my part for Heather`s Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge.

The challenge of week 1 was: Take part in a challenge! 

Your Assignment: 
Pick a contest or challenge, make something or start something! Blog about it or share your entry on the Facebook group. 

Done :)

  1. Those orange beads were a perfect find for your earrings. I love old beads with a history too. I call them vintage. Well done!

  2. And now I'm inspired to play with odd shapes more in my wire. I'm slowly feeling my way into wire work as a medium (other than hammering the snot out of it! lol) and these are wonderful (plus, I really love red).

  3. Beautiful, Claire - I love the fibers you incorporated! Those dragonflies or damselflies are the insects of my childhood summers, they are special to me. You really caught the spirit of the inspiration photo!

  4. What a fantastic start to both new challenges! Love all the little meaningful details that went into these colorful earrings. Nice!



  5. Love the way you've picked out the details from the image - lovely earrings!

  6. Love the orange and blue together and how you have given your earrings a new life from old!

  7. What great colors and design! I love that you used recycled beads.

  8. Your design has so many fun details. I love your shaped wire and repurposed beads.

  9. Love these earrings. Thanks for sharing with Wednesday's Adorned From Above Link Party.

  10. So glad that you participated in both! I am also doing Heather's challenge but haven't been good about getting pictures to that one. I love the way you translated their bodies to the wire. I was trying to go for that but couldn't quite manifest that. These are great! Join us next month! Thank you for joining in the Earrings Everyday We're All Ears Challenge! Enjoy the day. Erin
