Featured :: Lesley Watt of THEAtoo

Happy Easter everyone. Hopefully some bit of sun has found you over the weekend. We had egg dying going on yesterday, with sack races and egg hunts. We stayed outside until the sun went down just enjoying the first day we've been able to get back outside in warmer weather.

I did also manage to get in my last few pair of artisan made earrings for the AJE Challenge. I will post them this week, and start with this pair using some beautiful green bronze charms by Lesley Watt. I just love the organic, almost sea grass-like look of these charms. I added just a few simple light green, glass pearls to this pair. My love affair with Lesley's components is on-going. There will be more from her studio showing up in my work. She's got a big show going on this weekend, so I'm wishing her lots of success! You can find these earrings in my Etsy Shop.

Happy Easter! Sounds like a fun day. We had a bit of rain off and on and general grayness, but it was a good day overall.

I have a difficult time saying no to pearls, beautiful designs!
