Earring Challenge Reveal 6 (weeks 11-12/52) and a chance to join the Pinterest team

March 31, 2013 , In: General

Happy Easter and welcome to the 6th installment of the earring challenge reveal. If you’ve been keeping up with the pace of a pair of earrings each week, you are my hero. I am not a fan of making earrings. I think I have what’s called “2nd earring syndrome”. Once I’ve made an earring, I don’t want to make a 2nd one.

Did you make earrings using hand made art components this week? Link up at the end of this post so we can see what you made!

Also, now that we have gotten through the first quarter of 2013 (shocking, I know!), we are going to open up the Pinterest board to more pinners. So if you want to make a pair of earrings each week using at least one quality hand crafted component, leave a link to your pinterest home page in the comments. If you are already on the Pinterest team and want to continue, do nothing.  

We will continue to feature a few pairs of earrings every other Sunday. The best way to get your earrings featured here is to make great earrings using handmade art components, and to take gorgeous photos. 

With today being Easter, I decided to showcase a few pairs of earrings from the Pinterest board that remind me of spring.

First up, Claire Lockwood used lampwork dahlias by Ciel Creations, and lampwork headpins by Earthshine beads:

Megan Martin created these darling hand forged silver and riveted earrings with her own two hands and maybe a tool or two:

Kumi Fisher used these adorable owls by Rebekah Payne (Tree Wings Studio) in her earrings:
Remember to link your earrings from the last couple weeks below. 
Our next reveal is in two weeks on Sunday April 14th. Keep creating!

    Beautiful earrings. Like you, I dislike making that second earring, probably because there is so much pressure to make them both the same…or something like that.

    I'm so glad we can keep going with the earring challenge even after the 13 weeks is up. I missed so many weeks because of illness and only made two challenges. Thanks for letting us contiue to play along!

    Not be dumb here, but will folks be notified if they will be able to join the challenge/Pinterest group? And get more info on what we will need to do? Thanks! I'm super excited to participate but just need to know what I have to do from the tech side of things. Thanks!

      Not dumb at all! Several of us have shows this weekend and haven't had time to add people yet. We will add everyone who wants to join, but it won't be until next week. Once you are invited, it should show up on your pinterest page that you've been invited to pin.

    Thanks Jennifer! Good luck to all y'all who have shows. Do I need to do something with the linky tool? Or do I just sit tight until I get the invite?

    Thanks Jennifer! I'm excited to start pinning and creating more earrings! One question though… I'm pretty new to Blogger, and I can't figure out how to add the badge. Can anyone help me with tips on how you do that? Thanks!
