Let's go behind the design on how we made our Freshness Glass and Lampwork Beaded Dangle earrings.
These earrings are apart of a Jewelry on Etsy Team (JET Team) challenge later this month. 16 members of the team were sent 2 lambwork teal green and white swirl beads. The challenge is to create one piece using these beads with anything you have in your bead stash.
We scoured our bead collection and finally found some green bead chips that would accentuate the lampwork beads.
We wanted the lampwork beads to be the focal point of the earrings we decided to make out of them. So we gather our pliers, ear wires and head pins and got to work.
We took the lampwork beads and put them on the head pins by themselves. Grabbed 4 of the light shade of the green glass beads and put those on head pins and then put the darker glass bead chips on head pins as well. Our idea was to put the lampwork bead in the middle with the bead chips one on top and the other on the bottom.
Well as you can see from the photo we opted out of that idea and kept the light green bead chips. We decided to keep it simple and sweet. The lampwork beads are to be the focal point and all the glass bead chips were taking away from it. So we attached everything together and wallah. It's complete.
We'll let you know when the challenge entries are up for voting. In the mean time you can find them in our Etsy shop here.
