Healing and Empowerment for Women

You know I love a challenge. And I especially love a challenge that stretches me where I am already stretching.

The wonderful artisan earring designers at Earrings Everyday:

issued a challenge to design a pair of earrings to resonate with this photo.

The challenge is “We’re All Ears”.

I have a five year plan to make beautiful polymer clay opals. I am now in month 14 of that plan. I had recently had a breakthrough in my personal opal challenge when making some Beads of Courage for kids with cancer.

I decided to make green and blue “opal” clays, chop them into teensy, tinsy bits and then smoosh the bits back into a solid piece of clay.

These are the earrings I made from the “opal” clay. They are my entry into the challenge:

I also made a pendant to go with them:

I hope you like them!
