I use copper and brass together in everything. I also really like to use unexpected combinations of something industrial (stainless steel or a rusty washer) with something upscale like pearls or a crystal.

Regina said...

Copper and Turquoise, or any blue bead, really. Love the color combination.

Anna Lear said...

Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful earrings! Right now I'm playing with copper and shell components, both natural and dyed, and I am loving the combination! I love mixing up the copper, too, including raw, antiqued, and patinated components and wire in a single piece. In fact... it's time to play now! :-)

Pretty Things said...

I would be so proud to wear those!

I've been using lampwork glass and silver together forever, but lately I've been using polymer clay with wood, and ceramic with simple lampwork spacers and wood or shell. Been experimenting with copper and trying to get my customers to groove on it. Come ON, customers! :-)

Alice said...

I think lampwork beads go with anything; silver for a polished look, vintaj brass for an earthy look et.

Riki Schumacher said...

Lovely earrings! Great combination. I love pearls with So many things...etched brass, silver, copper, lovely. Riki

steufel said...

I think lampwork-beads and sari-ribbon are a great mix. But I have to say - sari-ribbon is a great match with everything. And I love copper and turquoise!

Kristen said...

I am not a designer but I love working with all sorts of different artistic components that mix with seed beads. I am currently working on two gorgeous collaborations using Missfickle chain (these earrings would so match) and another necklace with lampwork and enameled pendent from EB Metalworks! I hope I will do them both justice!

Miss Swish said...

I love turquoise and silver, aquamarine and bronze, gunmetal and amethyst :)

Klassy Joolz said...

I like turquoise with white pearls, lampwork beads with sterling silver and pearls and even pearls with ceramics. My love is Boro Lampwork beads with sterling silver. Trying to do more with brass, copper and gunmetal...
