June 19, 2015 Earrings Everyday June Challenge – Tide pools
Every month Erin Prais Hintz of Earrings Everyday ( http://www.earrings-everyday.blogspot.com) gives us a challenge to make earrings according to the theme of the month.
This month she gave us art prints of tide pools as our inspiration.
My first pair of earrings, above, was created using the Mokume Gane technique, derived from an ancient Japanese sword making scheme. The “white bubbles” are wonderfully translucent on sunny days.
My second pair used the same clay, but I manipulated it according to Lynda Mosley’s controlled marbling technique.
The third pair used the same clay again. This time I punched small circles from the clay and added denim colored button pearls.
I enjoyed making these. They will become a Christmas gift for my beautiful blue-eyed sister-in-law. Shhhh!
