Glass Headpin Challenge Reveal Day!

Today's the day! I issued a challenge for blog readers to see what you would make with a pair of my glass headpins. 5 were chosen for the challenge and you can find their links below. Here is what I made from my pair!I used my snowflower headpins to make a cute wintry pair of earrings. The beads are my ice sparkle lampwork beads, set off by two filigree bead caps.
I used opal blue swarovski crystals to complete the earring dangles, wrapped up the steel wire, and made sterling ear wires to finish them off! All in all, I really really like them! To see what everyone else made, follow their links below:

Art Jewelry Elements August Headpin Design Challenge

It's the end of August, which means it's time for another Art Jewelry Elements challenge!  This month it was a headpin design challenge, and I am ALL OVER IT!  I have a few headpin tutorials over at the Art Jewelry Elements blog: Flower Disc Bead Earrings Flower Headpin Earrings Earring Stacks with Headpins And then I made all of these other earrings with my headpins! These earrings used pretty filigree copper bead caps with czech beads and a size 8 seed bead. These earrings used a gorgeous brass bead cap with a titanium hematite rondelle and a size 8 seed bead in a complementary color. These beach inspired earrings used an ammonite headpin with titanium hematite spacers, and a gorgeous coppered aqua pumpkin bead, an indonesian bead, a wood bead, and a size 11 seed bead to capture all of the elements of the beach! And these earrings, which are also beach themed, using an ammonite headpin, titanium hematite spacer beads, czech faceted rondel

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they w
