Earrings to Wear Alone or with Statement Necklaces

Amber Globe Earrings

Banana Beach Earrings

 

While creating the series of statement necklaces inspired by Japanese fishing floats I started setting aside some lampwork and other interesting beads to use in earrings.  My usual rule of thumb when wearing statement jewelry is to have one piece be the focal and if you wear other jewelry have them play supporting roles.  In other words, if you wear a necklace that is telling a significant story wear earrings that don't steal the narrative and visa versa.

Depending on your style these earrings can stand alone too.

Focus brings Thought, Depth, and Curation

Artisan Necklace

Hope Floats No. 4

 

I learned a lot by creating in a series rather than one-offs.  By focusing on one idea or element I was able to broaden my thought, deepen my meaning, and curate a collection.

In this next set of mixed media pendants and necklaces I expanded beyond talisman to story telling which is my favorite kind of art.
