I was inspired to make a pair of glow-in-the-dark mood bead earrings by the Earrings Everyday April challenge.

The thing which struck me from this photo was the dynamic quality of the light, so I included the mood beads which change colour. I made the beads on the bottom from polymer clay and the “white” veins glow in the dark. These beads convey the glow from windows.Ā  The central beads feature the colours of the photo and the patterns are mirrored like the reflections on the water. And the pink cotton cord… well that connects the beads to the ear-wires šŸ˜‰

Here’s a close up where I’ve changed the colour of one of the mood beads by warming it in my hand.
