We're All Ears :: September Reveal

It was all about line and movement for me this month.


The challenge of translating a fast-paced music video like "Torque Starter" for me lies in picking something to focus on. I chose to focus on the section near the end when the glowing ball was making spirals that overlapped on themselves.

It took me a fair bit of trial and error, but I finally made something that felt right. Just a few feet of wire wrapped around two different size Sharpie markers made the base of the spirals, wired them totether and added a little glowing crystal rondelle for the flash.

I wanted the ear wires to be integrated into the design, so I came up with a spring that sort of unravels. And yes, I purposely made them asymmetrical! Nothing groundbreaking in this design, but it did open my eyes to new forms (I could see flowers like these) and how to manipulate the wire to suit my vision.

There was so very much in this interactive performance art that you could use to inspire your designs. I can hardly wait to see what you did!
Let's see what you created!

  2. Awesome, very new age, spacey, Jetson, vibe! Well done.

  3. Thanks for hosting this challenge!

    Greetings, Sofie

  4. Omg Erin! They are absolutely and gorgeously fantastic! Terri said spectacular, and I totally agree. They must be so beautiful when worn. I love the added crystal for sparkle. Please continue experimenting with wire in that way. Even if I don't think I could ever manage to create anything remotely similar I am very very inspired. :-)

  5. Wow! Very clever and perfectly lovely xx

  6. Love these wire earrings! they are perfect for the inspiration video. Thanks for this challenge and again for sharing that fabulous video.

  7. Fun with a Sharpie and a roll of wire - how unique! As always, you created something that evokes the feel of the inspiration medium. These are most definitely OOAK earrings. Never have I seen something like these. Love them! I wish I had done this challenge such justice, but it was still an interesting process, and I loved the video. Thanks again, Erin. You rock!!

  8. Nothing groundbreaking in the design? Oh Erin it's perfect! What a lovely interpretation of those concentric circles. You continue to inspire us.
    Thanks for pushing all of us
