And more earrings

A new Stacked Earrings Challenge reveal is coming up soon. This time the beads (really lovely ones) are picked by Claire Lockwood. The date isn't decided yet, but until then I am still making even more earrings on the side of the challenge. The reason why I am not making any other types of jewelry lately is basically that my studio and my work table is so unbelievably and incredibly messy, so there is literally no space for me to work on. Hence the smallest jewelry objects are the ones I can at least manage to still put together. In all that mess there are both necklaces and bracelets just waiting for that final touch before they are ready. I really really must clean up in there any day soon.

Anyway, here are a three new earrings:

I really like the mix/meeting of the rustic and the sparkly in these ones.
  • Green ceramic pods on wire (head pins) by Marsha Neal
  • Vintage Swarovsky celadon green rounds (there is lovely luxurious sparkle to them which is not quite captured on this photo)
  • Beaded beads by myself
  • Sterling silver ear wires, heavily oxidized

I call these ones Arabian Nights. I come to think of a belly dancer in an Arabian night club from some old movie.
  • Turquoise, brass color and black polymer clay beads by GracefulWillowBeads
  • Facetted black glass
  • Brass and silvery beads, findings and ear hooks

These ones I made a couple or so months ago. A very fruity feeling to them don't you agree.
  • Yellow faceted pods by Barbara Bechtel of SecondSurf (one of my absolute favorite Art Bead makers)
  • Beaded beads by myself
  • Copper findings and ear hooks
All three pairs are for sale. Please contact me if you are interested. malindekoning[at]

All my best,
