On the Bead Table :: Pips Jewellery

Back in the Fall I joined a blog hop hosted by the Brit Pack Beaders where I created a Jane Austen inspired choker and matching earrings. My inspiration was the city of Bath, and the lovely Pippa of Pips Jewellery, rewarded me with a set of her beautiful petal covered beads.

This is just a simple pair of earrings using the petal beads and a hint of silver. I didn't want to distract from the flowers as they are so pretty on their own. They seem like the perfect pair to make right about this time of year as I wait for the first signs of Spring, and a hint of the flowers in the yard to pop up through the snow. This is pair #8 in the AJE Earring Challenge.
