Ta-Da!

The flowers are in full bloom!


Even though it's overcast today, the colors are still so vibrant they almost glow.



Got the urge to make some jewelry last night and came up with these earrings. I had restrung a friend's broken bracelet and had the heart dangles left over. She hadn't been able to find all the pieces when the bracelet broke and I couldn't fit these into the new pattern without making it lopsided. I used antique gold findings with cranberry freshwater pearls and Czech crystals and glass beads I bought in Prague last year. The little dragonflies add a touch of whimsy to them.

Hi Julie, I think this is a great way to use those leftover beads. The way everything spills from the ear wire is very lively! Neat stuff.
