Pretty Roses in My Garden ~ 52 Earrings: week 22

Oops! I was so busy that I missed making earrings for week 21... yikes! The theme was "sea". I had some good ideas going, but didn't get any of them finished in time. So I'll try again next week and hopefully get caught up... and show you TWO pairs! :-)

Here's what I made for this week (week 22, if anyone's counting)...
If I had a flower garden, it would be full of roses in all colors. I love roses!

I made these rose beads using the same mold I had made for my Scattered Roses earrings a couple weeks back. I cast them in a deep red clay and painted them in layers of copper, purple, and light blue, which gave them a look of patinated copper. I combined them with czech glass, antique brass, and tufts of blue fabric.


These beads were really fun to make and I got a little carried away and made some more for you all to use in your own jewelry creations!


See them in my shop here.


Check out the Flickr pool here to see what everyone else mixed up for week twenty-two.

See you next week with another pair TWO pairs!!
