|Reference piece from Earrings Everyday|
The building I chose to use as my inspiration (pictured above) is L'Oceanografic which is the largest oceanographic aquarium in Europe. I just love the design. It reminds me of a dolphin crashing back into water after it has just taken a breath. The sleekness and the round curve is what drew me to the photograph.
Last week, I also participated in Andrew Thornton's Frenzied Motion Challenge. While I was making the pieces for that challenge, I couldn't help but think how much some of the beads he had included in the kit would work perfectly for this month's earring design.
I love the smooth circular lines of the saucer shaped beads and I continued the roundness in my choice of the light lavender coin shaped beads in the dangle as well. Since this is an ocean themed inspiration picture, I added Swarovski crystals in shades of blue and grey to mimic the color of the sea.
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my entry for this month's challenge! Check out everyone's designs below!
