Earrings Everyday October Challenge

I got time to play along this month . I somehow seem to miss the deadline for participation , so hopefully I can play along this month. Here is the inspiration photo that I used for my starting point. 



Aren't these outfits stunning? love the colours! 
I have always been a fan of the plums, purples and garnets. 

I was working on designs for another blog hop and was playing around with some items I had removed from a sew-on beaded trim used for halloween costumes and it reminded me of these outfits.   
So I decided to complete them and play along with this months challenge. 
I kept them very simple as the outfits shown are quite busy, with the textures and patterns used. These earrings would be best with the first row of outfits as the colours are more plummy than purply. I just could not get my camera to pick up the real colour of these and the hint of sparkle in the large motifs. These are quite lightweight as well as the large swirls are from sew-on trim that needs to be washable so they are plastic. 
But they are pretty nonetheless. 
 I also made a matching necklace, 
but as this is an earring challenge I won't show them on this post , 
so check back tomorrow and see what I made to go with these. 


here is the main site for the challenge

  10. Sew-on trim? Isn't it fun to find jewelry materials in unexpected places? I always swing by the sewing section of craft stores for inspiration. These would look great with those unadorned outfits. I also read your post about the necklace. Cutting the bat out of leather was super cool. Nice work!
