New day - new challenge

After a period of complete and utter loss of my making mojo, i joined in with another smaller challenge.
The challenge was to make a piece of jewellery which reflected this image supplied by our host Dina Bruinsma.
I actually started out with lots of crystals and chains but could not get into a creative flow with them.
I think i have been over thinking my pieces and tried to simplify matters by making earrings.
After going through my stash of beads i found out some crystals that were given to me by my grandma when i was a child along with lots of buttons.
One pair of crystals reminded me of the red lanterns in this picture and so these were my starting point.
I found some lovely s linked silver chain and added some diamonte balls to emulate the fantastic tower.
Defiantly enjoyed this challenge and my making mojo is returning at last.


  1. These are lovely! :D

    ...And so glad that your making mojo is returning--hope that those creative juices keep flowing for you!

  2. These are gorgeous, I hope your Mojo is here to stay for awhile.

  3. Dear Sam,

    I love the story behind your ♥beautiful♥ pair of earrings, about the crystals and being a child. And why you choose the diamond balls... it all comes together in your work!

  4. Those earrings are wonderful! They are a really great take-off of that photo. I could definitely see wearing those earrings taking a walk down that lovely street at night. I think your muse is coming back because this seems like a great new beginning.
