WATER April Week 2 Elements Theme SRAJD Jewelry Challenge

Our design challenge theme for April is “ELEMENTS” and the second set of entries for this month were inspired by the weekly theme of “WATER”.

Kim Forrer of Kim Forrer Designs
Titled Treasures of the Sea, this hand painted leather cuff with old coin was inspired by the beautiful colors of the Caribbean waters and the treasures lurking on the bottom from long ago ship wrecks.

Shelly Owen of Raziela Designs
I love sea themed elements in jewelry. When I received this starfish as a gift, I had to make it into something.

I saw these Czech glass beads and had to purchase them because they reminded me of tropical seas. I stamped a wavy pattern into the copper to complete the theme.

Nohline L'Ecuyer of Nohline L'Ecuyer
"Water drops" These have become my favourite earrings since I made them. Need to make more for the shop. Lampwork and sterling silver.

Trish Gray
My little fish has plique-a-jour enamel for his scales, a little bulging millefiori eye. The mottled effect is one of those 'happy chances' which made me think of rippling water....

Tammy Adams of Paisley Lizard
I'm calling this necklace "April Showers." I made the focal and large beads from polymer clay, and accented them with wire-wrapped apatite rondelles on silver circles.

Jo Pound of Jewelry by Jolane
The colors in the Swarovski crystals remind me of all the colors in the waters around Florida.

Lori Mlinarcik of G & L Treasures
This is a set of beach glass jewelry that I made for a customer. I used her beach glass from Hawaii. She was there for her 20th anniversary and this is how she'll be able to enjoy it everyday.

Bonnie Jacobsen of BDJ Designs

Nathalie Lesage of Nathalie Lesage Jewelry
Blue Waters wire wrapped Sterling Silver and Brazilian Apatite Earrings... When I think of water, I think of the Caribbeans. These earrings have a lot of movement to them, and this remind me of the flickering of the sun on the open water.

Sue Ranbarger of Suzies Little Shop
Indigo Blue on Sterling. The Czech glass just pools like liquid.

Love them all but I ESPECIALLY love Nohline - the drops are just amazing.

I love the "Water Drops" too. So exquisite. I love everyone's designs and interpretation of the theme.

It's so fabulous that no two designs interpreted the theme in the same way.
