Playing with photo effects and jewelry

I've been wanting to post all week and show you my earrings that are in the current issue of Stringing Magazine! {shown below}

The earrings are created with raw brass hammered disks, and pretty green picasso czech glass beads. When I created these spring inspired earrings I didn't have a specific design in mind!

I knew I was going to use the brass hammered disks to mimic the sun.

And then, since these earrings are for the spring season, I decided to pair the disks with green beads.

These beads, in different variations of greens and teals, complemented the brass disks perfectly! Then I topped them off with a smaller bronze bead. Sometimes, designs flow easily and come together just the way you had hoped!

ps...Thank you Stringing for showcasing these earrings in your spring issue!

Congratulations on being published in this fabulous magazine! I just got my issue the other day and haven't had the time to dig into it.

Your earrings are beautiful! But I can only see the first photo--all the others have the dreaded red x.

Have a great weekend!
