Welcome to the last AJE Earring Challenge Reveal. We are so happy that you have chosen to play along with us. I think there must be many of you who, like me, did not have new earrings every single week in 2013, but who made an effort to keep up with the challenge as best you could. Congratulations to you!

I sold a lot of earrings during my last (and only) Christmas show, so I was glad I’d made so many over the course of this past year. I hope that many of the earrings you made have found new homes too.

Here are a few of the earrings that caught my eye, from the past 2 weeks.
These earring were made by Claire Fabian. I love the ancient, rustic look she achieved on her handmade polymer components!
And finally, I want to highlight this pretty pair of earrings by Mon Urkhart. The beautiful bead-woven Forget-Me-Nots were made by Nancy Dale. I was not familiar with Nancy’s work until I wrote today’s blog post. Her bead weaving is gasp-worthy! You should visit her Etsy shop and blog.
Did some of you manage to get all 52 pairs of earrings made? Please let us know in the comments below. Curious minds want to know! And congratulations to all of us who took on such a big challenge.
This will be my last post for 2013. I want to thank all our readers and my teammates for the many ways you have enriched my life this past year. I wish you the happiest of holidays.
If you have earrings to share this week, be sure to link up for this last reveal. Enjoy!
