Take a LEAF out of this book!

Apologies for the cheesy title (but houseofspoon started it!!)
This is the first pair of earrings I have made - confession - I copied them from a little piece I made for my Mummy (which will feature here a little bit later!) As I was making her piece a few ideas popped up in my mind and I couldn't wait to get started on these two.

I love the earthy, tree-y feel of the leaves and the peppermint-y colour of the Swarovski crystals and the pearls (I've just got a craving for peppermint creams...wonder where that came from?...) The leafy beads and charms really tie in the nature-theme, while the flower and drop charms give the earrings a slightly edgier(sp?) feel so they are not too matchy-matchy.


  1. i ADORE these...very elven-wood-lord-of-the-rings-y

  2. Tres elegant!!
    EVEN I would wear these! They're lovely! Go Poog, more, more and open a shop!!
