Earrings Every Day Month, Final Day

Earrings Every Day Month, Final Day

September has been Earrings Every Day Month here at Emerging Creatively Tutorials.  Each day we’ve been making a pair of earrings.  I’ve been showing you what I’ve been making (links below) here on my blog.

The end of a month long project is always so bittersweet, isn’t it?

On one hand, I’m proud of all the earrings I’ve made.  I had so much fun and creative inspiration the entire month.

On the other hand, I’m sad it’s over.  It’s become such a part of my daily routine to make earrings each day.

Simultaneously with this project, I’ve been doing a daily scrapbooking project as well this month.  And it feels so weird that both are over.

But the thing about it is it doesn’t actually have to be over.  I can keep making jewelry every day and I can keep scrapbooking each day, too.  And I just might do that.  🙂

I wanted to share my last couple of earrings from Earrings Every Day Month/Earrings eCourse.

The

Day 29:  Chain and Bead Teardrop Earrings

Chain and Bead Teardrops

These earrings were a new edition for the 2015 Earrings eCourse and so much fun to make!

The beads are beads are from a necklace that I took apart that I got at a used jewelry sale.  (I used beads from the same necklace for these earrings, too.)

I made my own earring wires as usual.  That’s something I’m finding I did more often this year.  I think I used earrings I made myself for all of the earrings this year instead of using any store purchased.

It is pretty quick and easy just to make your own earring wires.

Day 30:  Beaded Square Earrings

Beaded Square Earrings

These are also new for the 2015 Earrings eCourse.

I chose to just use a variety of randomly colored beads, just pulling out beads from a bag of multicolored beads I had.

I used brass wire and, of course, made my own earring wires.

Well, that concludes Earrings Every Day Month for another year!

If you are in Earrings eCourse, you have continued access the the class and can keep on making earrings with the tutorials.  And if you are an Earrings Every Day participant with either the paid (Earrings eCourse) or free version and feel “behind,” just keep on going.  You can still make earrings.  Don’t feel behind.

If you missed out this year, don’t worry!  There will be Earrings Every Day Month again in September 2016!

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 27

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 27

We’re in the home stretch of Earrings Every Day Month!  If you missed it this year, I’m so sorry, but you can watch for it again in September 2016!

The idea is to make a pair of earrings each day for the month of September.  (Sorry that the daily inspirational email is closed now to new participants, as well as the Earrings eCourse that goes along with it with tutorials every day.  These will reopen next year!)

If you still want to participate, you can simply challenge yourself every day for a month.  It doesn’t have to be earrings necessarily, but earrings are (usually) quick to make and you can feel creative in a short period of time.

Day 27:  Weaving

Wire Weaved Earrings

This isn’t particularly what you think of when you think of weaving wire, but people do call this technique weaving, so that’s what I’m calling it.

I repurposed these beads from an old necklace I got at a flea market a while back.  It was a long necklace, so it had lots of beads.  I chose the colors because it’s autumn and I’m trying to embrace it.  (It’s difficult for me.  I am a summer person.)

Here are the earrings I have made the past couple of days:

Day 25:  Leaf Earrings

Earrings Every Day Month, Days 25 and 26

The wire leaf earrings are a very simple version of the originals I made.  I really just wanted that leaf shape.  Also, they’re much smaller than my original earrings.  (The earring tutorial is available in the Nature Jewelry eWorkshop.)

I used brass wire, which I’m using more and more of lately.  The original tutorial had beads, but I kept these super simple and clean.

Day 26:  Spiral and Dangle Earrings

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 26

I also simplified these earrings from the original tutorial as well.  I used just plain earring wires.  I made those little spiral coils (under the beads) but I only used one per earring (in the original there were two.)

Additionally, I didn’t hammer the wires hanging down.  I do love hammering and the look of hammered metal, but I wanted to see how it would look without hammering and I I really like this version, too!

Are you still in it?  Are you hanging in there making earrings each day?  🙂  Maybe you can take this weekend to make some extra earrings.

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 24

Today’s earrings in the Earrings eCourse part of Earrings Every Day month was a new tutorial this year, the Drop Bunch Earrings.  I used rose quartz gemstone nuggets and some tiny rose quartz and white beads on the drop.

Today is Day 23 of Earrings Every Day Month and I’m sharing the earrings I’m making each day as we go along!  (Or kind of every day….)

If you didn’t get in to sign up for the challenge, you can still participate just by making a pair of earrings each day!

Today I’m catching up on sharing the last few days of my earrings.

Day 19:  Beaded Hoops

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 19

I purchased a few strands of these beads on sale a little while back and just haven’t made anything with them yet.  I love the colors.  Now that I have earrings, I plan to also make a multi-strand bracelet as well!

Day 20:  Hoop with Bead Dangles

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 20

For these I wanted to have a longer dangle.  Originally I was going to use a stack of a few beads but then I saw these beads and remembered how much I love them.  You can purchase the Hoop with Bead Dangles Pattern here if you’re interested!  🙂

Day 21:  Boho Tassel Earrings

I want to be perfectly honest with you, so I have to say I did not make these earrings.  I had plans and a design idea including embroidery thread, but I ran out of time.  I still will make these earrings eventually, but just not on this day.

This is an important lesson.  It is an every day challenge, but sometimes other things just get in the way and it doesn’t happen every single day, even for me.

Day 22:  Spiral Wire Earrings

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 22

For these earrings, I made the spirals a little looser than in the original tutorial.  They’re simple and pretty.

Day 23:  Bead Dangle II

Earrings Every Day Month, Day 23

I ended up using this lime green color beads because they matched my outfit and I needed some earrings.  I love that part of being a jewelry maker!  I used knotted headpins and made unique earring wires.

Have you made earrings every day?  If not, no worries.  Even if you just make one pair of earrings this month, it’s one more pair than you had previously.
