Earring Challenge Reveal 8- Weeks 15 & 16

It's that time again! Reveal 7 for my earrings makes for week's 15 & 16 of the AJE Earring Challenge.

You may see a bit of a theme running through here as I have been playing with a couple of odd rods of glass that I have in my stash and these rings go so well in earrings. Must make some more to go in my shop.

First up Rustic Birds.
I picked up these cute copper birdies when I was at the Flame Off bead fair a while ago. The rings are made of Effetre red copper green glass which has then been etched for a matt finish. I love this glass, it's a shame I only have a small piece of a rod left. I then used the pink/peach Czech glass flowers from The Curios Bead Shop to bring out the pinky colour in the rings. The antique brass earwires are from Smitten Beads.

And......Grecian Rings (really couldn't think of a better name!)

These were inspired by the Czech glass beads and headpins from my Curiosity Shop monthly theme pack of Greek Temple. I was looking for ages for something to make to go with them and my trusty rings came to the rescue this time made with Effetre metallic copper green glass which has again been etched for a matt finish. Who knew there were so many variations of copper green?

Both pairs of earrings are up for sale in my Etsy jewellery store. Please click on the pictures if you would like to buy.

Don't forget to go and have a look at the other participants in the challenge.

Thanks for looking.
