We're All Ears - June Challenge


Today’s reveal day for the We're All Ears  - June challenge!  This month the theme is strawberries which are very interesting fruit.  Stop by Erin’s blog post to see the list of fun facts about strawberries.  You may learn a thing or two. 
 
 

I sorted through my beads and couldn't find anything REAL strawberry-ish but I did find some lovely lampwork beads in a red hue that I think work well with these large ceramic beads.
 
I incorporated antique brass findings and made some earwires to match.

  6. Perfect! It isn't always about being literal, but you took the colors and ran with it! I like the addition of the open space ring on the bottom that gives these earrings some visual weight. Thanks for playing along with me in this juicy June challenge. Stop by at Earrings Everyday on July 1st for our next inspiration! Enjoy the day. Erin

  7. I'm all for using what you have on hand! Nice work with your strawberry inspired earrings! The wire work around the ceramic beads makes me think of the vine-y nature of the strawberry plant.
