Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

About this design:

These earrings were my entry in Art Bead Scene's October Challenge, based on a painting by Giovanna Garzoni of a hedgehog, of all things. They use many of the colors in the color palette, and they are even shaped like a hedgehog, the subject of the painting. These are part of my Southwestern Landscapes series created using a controlled marbling technique. The earring findings are sterling and were made for me by an artist at Etsy.

And they won! My prizes are some of Heather Powers's polymer beads and a signed copy of her new book! Yay!
