Mis-Matched Earring Swap

A few weeks ago I read about a mismatched earring swap Diana -suburban girl studio-Ptaszynski was throwing. After debating  back & forth w/ myself (it's an Art Bead thing) I decided to take the plunge. The uber talented Rebecca Anderson, was my partner.

I think these are brilliant in their simplicity on several levels. The colour scheme of  positive & negative is a deceptively easy mismatch, & then she throws in those wire wrapped pearl dangles. We all know that isn't a quick easy little detail, it takes some time to wrap wire so nicely. Now, about that flower, look closely, that's LEATHER! These wear so well. I debuted them w/ a black & white outfit & I really liked the pop of brightness I got w/ these. "Less is More" really applies here! Thank You so much, Rebecca, these are destined to be a favorite pair of earrings.
                                         So, here's the list of the Mismatched Swappers, enjoy!
