Spring Rain Earrings


About this design:

Spring rain to me brings colors and a softness to everything during the season. To make these earrings I used materials from the earrings and necklace kit in addition to ladder ribbon.

These earrings were inspired by the falling rain over flowers. I added the ladder ribbon to soften the design and to make it more spring like. I thought the the aquamarine drops with the Czech glass leaves looked like a raindrop.

Components:

2 Peruvian Amazonite Round 6mm beads, 2 Aquamarine Tumbled Nugget Drop 7-10x8-15mm beads, 2 Green Fluorite (A) Puff Coin 6mm beads, 4 Czech Glass Horizon Leaf Drop 8x12mm beads, Vintaj jump rings and head pins, 2 Vintaj Arte Metal Primrose Stencils 11x28mm, 2 Vintaj Arte Metal French Ear Wires 10x20mm, 8 Labradorite Faceted Rondelle 4mm beads, 8 Luster Blue Crystal Faceted Rondelle 4mm beads, 4 Marine Blue Shell Pearl Round 6mm beads, crocheted blue/yellow/green ladder ribbon
