Mismatched Monday: Earrings and Inspiration

I'm happy to bring you the brand new "Mismatched Monday"!  Twice a month I'll be posting mismatched earrings and the very things that inspired them!
This month's earrings were inspired by this fall scarf I picked up at Target a few weeks ago.

I wanted to create earrings that were fun yet simple, as the scarf should remain the focal of my outfit.  I pulled some of the most prominent colors from the scarf into my earrings using gemstones.  I also found these fabulous little acrylic charms in my bead stash that worked perfectly.
Materials:
Acrylic charms from MyElements by Yvonne
Assorted gemstones (citrine, garnet, carnelian, honey jasper, amethyst) from Rings & Things
Chain from Primitive Earth Beads
Wire and findings from Patina Queen

  9. These are über cute, Diana. I would love to get over my fear of "mismatching"... that, along with other asymmetric design, I find challenging. Must come from a childhood when everything had to coordinate LOL.

  12. Ok, I totally applaud you, but I would not be able to handle my earrings being different! I'm so goofy anyway, people would never notice that they were actually a pair. They'd just smile and say, "Bless her heart".

  13. Lovely! I'm really looking forward to the Mismatched Artbead Earring reveal on October 16th. (http://vintagebluestudio.typepad.com/vintage_blue_studio/2012/09/mismatched-art-bead-earring-swap-rules-sign-ups.html) Making mismatched earrings was way more difficult than I anticipated. Thanks for the creative nudge.
