AJE Component of the Month - Jennifer Stout Cameron!

Today is the reveal for the Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month!  This month, Jennifer Stout Cameron of Glass Addictions provided us with a pair of glass headpins she made! 

I'm afraid I wasn't too imaginative, in that I made earrings from the pair.  While I wanted them to be dangles on something, like a bracelet, earrings just kept calling to me!  These are as close to mis-matched earrings as I will ever get!  The headpins came with a very long piece of copper and I cringed when I cut it - what if I dind't like the earrings I made?  Well, too bad, Sue, you'll have to live with it when you cut!  I feel like I need to add one more dangle to the earrings, and then I'll be happy with them!

Please stop by Art Jewelry Elements blog to see what everyone else made with their wonderful headpins!  And thanks Jennifer for the amazingly wonderful headpins!

Love these Sue - I have a real thing for chain earrings at the moment.
Oh I like these! A rustic, organic feel to them. Very nice!

I like them! You are way too hard on yourself. Well done!

Beautiful earrings! I love the earthy colors. Like you, I was frightened of cutting the long wire which I think really hampered my creativity because I really wanted to make something other than a pair of earrings.

I love these earrings Sue. Simple but funky and glamorous all at the same time!

I love these! I am all about long earrings lately, and these would be a go-to for their color and their swinginess. Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Enjoy the day. Erin
Sue! You crack me up. Talking to yourself and sharing that conversation with us. It is kind of scary to cut the wire...

Thanks for participating! I love the earrings!

I think they look wonderful! I'm with you, I just can't do mismatched in earrings. I love the soft, swingey feel of these Sue!
Kristen said…
As usual Sue you really take my breath away!

Oh - the green and the blue! Thats a sweet pair of headapins. I thought earrings - but have a show this weekend and knew a necklace would flesh out my inventory. Two birds and all that.

I like the earrings - i like earrings that move!

These came out great! I like the way you used them on a chain. It works very well. They look like they would be fun to wear.

Very pretty. I love the addition of the wood on the second dangle. These would rock with jeans!

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

October Art Elements Theme Challenge - Petroglyphs

I'm afraid I just didn't have the time to participate in last months theme, which was faerie. This month the theme is petroglyphs hosted by Karen Totten. Since I'm spending 10 days in Iceland this month, I really didn't get to spend any extended amount of time on the theme, but I did find these AWESOME petroglyph earring charms by Jill of Foxpaws on etsy! I highly recommend checking out her shop - every package you get is a gift in itself - TRUST ME!

SO here are the earrings I made!



I hope you also visit all the other participants! I'm sure there will be some awesome creations!
