Art Bead Earring Swap

Diana who hosts the blog, http://www.thegossipinggoddess.blogspot.com/; has hosted an earring swap that I accepted the invite to participate in.  I had two swap partners, Fay Wolfenden and Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads.
The only requirements for the earring designs were that the ear wires be sterling, and the designer must use hand made art beads.
Here are the wonderful earrings that I received from my partners:


These were made by Fay Wolfenden, glass and metal artist. Here is her materials list:
sterling silver
lampwork beads
swarovski crystals
Chunky and sparkly, and the neutral color scheme makes them so wearable!


This lovely pair came from my partner Sue Kennedy.  Sue makes lampwork and enamel beads.
I especially love her choice of ear wires for this flowery pair.
The long curved shape goes perfectly with the blossoms and brings to mind
a stem or leaf.

Here is a better shot of the wires.
This was fun! Visit the Gossiping Goddess
for a full tour of the swap.
Thank you Sue and Fay for my wonderful earrings!

Oh! I love those neutral beads. The colors would go with absolutely everything. And those little ruffly petals are so pretty! I would feel flirty in those! Enjoy the day. Erin
