Flora and Fauna

The blue rose earrings I made earlier this week not only flew out the door as soon as I'd listed them on Etsy, but I got multiple requests for more!  I only wish I had another dozen or so pairs, but I always say that's the beauty and bane of working with vintage pieces.

I guess I'm not the only one in the mood for flora and fauna this time of year, so I made a garden of new earrings and a necklace, mostly with this springtime theme in mind.

Roses, vines, soft colours, and some delicate religious pieces are where my heart is at right now.

I love the faded quality of this old celluloid cabbage rose.
And thought these hand painted Russian drops were adorable paired with chippy peachy roses.
Here cameos and crowns are mellowed with aqua quartz and chalcedony.
I always appreciate when you stop by!  Enjoy your week!  :)
