new earrings


Finished these late last evening. Photo was taken in the early morning light. Spiral shell beads from my acquisitions of last weekend, foldformed copper leaves and smooth moonstone briolettes, like dewdrops.

These earrings are so tranquil and serene. The rich copper tones look beautiful against that creamy shell and clear moonstone. Very lovely!

I like how the dew drops echo the water theme of the spiral shell. The leaves remind me of sea weed. Lovely!

The combination is pure bliss! Those leaves are a marvel. Very beachy, yet fall oriented too.

It seems your jewelry is getting more beautiful by the day!

I'd just like to add, thanks for stopping by my blog regularly, with such kind words. I really appreciate your support, Renate.

Renate the folded leaves are incredible! I love these earrings!

S- great earrings; and great foldformed leaves. I always always find it is a bit tricky to create the smaller leaves for jewellery - can be a challenge for the fingers - I have made myself a couple of very small light hammers for this work. Go well. B
