Echo Creative Club with Jeannie Dukic

Last year, I was chosen to be part of the Echo Creative Club by Jeannie Dukic!  She sends us beads, we send her beads, and we each make something!  I chose beads from her faux stoneware collection, and of course neglected to take a photo of them when I got them!  Here's an example of a similar color to mine!  Mine are turquoise with copper accents.

 I was going to make a bracelet with them, but I really liked them and wanted a pair of earrings for myself to wear.  So, I decided to make three different styles of earrings!

This first uses a pair of leaf connectors from Kristi Bowman and indonesian glass seed beads.

 This second pair uses a pair of copper matchsticks that I made - annealed, pounded, textured, pickled, antiqued and sealed!  Lots of steps but I love the look! 

 And finally, my favorite pair; beaded beads that I made myself that go together perfectly with Jeannie's beads! 
I hope you enjoyed what I made with Jeannie's beads, and please go visit her blog to see what she made with mine!

Even though I like them all very much and I always love seeing my copper components in use, my favorite are the last pair with your beaded beads!

Well, I guess we both forgot to take pictures of the beads. Great minds...
The earrings are very fabulous.
Thank you so much for joining me this year, it was a pleasure.
