We’re All Ears Design Challenge - July

The above quote comes from a TEDx talk that sparked the inspiration for July’s We’re All Ears Challenge. You can read about it here

The screen shot below is taken from an interpretation of Bohemian Rhapsody 2. It happens at approx. 1:40 – 1:50 in the video. 

The image reminded me of the charms used in these earrings. I had originally selected them because they reminded me of the music my relatives played when we wanted to celebrate our French Canadian heritage. There were heavy Atlantic coast, Northern Canadian and European influences in the family and I have never been able to pin down the exact origin but I don’t have much of a musical ear so that doesn’t help

Hungarian Rhapsody

The charms are antiqued brass stamped with a mandala like pattern. I am quite taken by the flowers in the centre. A healthy coating of gilders paste was applied to bring out the details. Tiny glass beads in a lighter green and brass colour help to tie the charms to the antiqued brass ear wires

You can find the earrings in my shop.

Please visit the Earrings Everyday site for the blog reveal to see what everyone else made

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day
