I think earrings are both fun and challenging. I am in a place in my jewelry making where I want all my work to be cohesive, and honestly represent my style. When you make earrings, you don't have much room to make a statement. They are an artform all their own!!!!! So it can be challenging, but its always fun to make mini- art too! (if you have seen how chunky and large my necklaces are, you will see why I call earrings mini-art!)
I got paired up with Lisa Petrillo of Lucid Moon Studio! I was really excited, since I have "met" her through a couple of other hops. I love her work, she really has an eye for design. Her blog is full of life, and I just know she would be so much fun to hang out with in person. Lisa is in the process of moving this week, I don't know how she does it all!!!!
Here is the amazing package I got from her.
Then I opened it to find these adorable and versitile earrings! Love them, and so will my mom.
So, I am looking at these beads, going, "these look so familiar". So I emailed Lisa and it turns out they are made by Love My Art Jewelry's own LeAnn of Summer Studios!!! Small world!!
If you want to check out what everyone else got, here are the links! There are some great artists in this bunch. I can't wait to have an excuse to browes their blogs all morning!!!
