I've been making a lot of ceramic earring components for fall Bead Fest, which is only a week away! I've been inspired by the fall colors around me and so I decided to glaze these leaf charms purple. Admittedly, they are not maple leaves, but we'll just chalk that up to artistic imagination.
The links the leaves are hanging from, came from some chain I got on sale. The price was deeply reduced, probably because the chain is too large for most designs. But I took all the links apart and they are awesome for use as components!
I dangled etched glass lampwork beads (Beads and Botanicals) from the links, along with some lime green seed beads. The earrings have a nice movement and are fun to wear. I love the traditional Autumn oranges, reds and browns, but its also fun to mix it up a bit with some purple!
The Purple Leaf Earrings are available in my shop.
