Vineyard Harvest

About this design:

To begin with, this wasn't at all what was supposed to happen. I laid the components out for a bracelet and when I saw the colors together, I saw grapes and vineyards! The pieces just sort of put themselves together and I decided that earrings would be better. These beads in the stained glass kit are so awesome! You don't even have to think about what to do, you just create!!


Stained glass window kit, French earwires, Bohemian teardrop, Vintaj findings.

    These are great. The finding you choose accentuate the beads well. Makes me think
    grapes. The wine glass holding the earrings, that really makes me want a nice merlot to pair with them.

    These are really pretty! I love how you used the negative space in the Vintaj teardrop, by dangling the two sizes of beads. Perfect!

    Beautifully balanced and lovely color combination, too. I like the different ways that you experimented with displaying the earrings, too. I’m still learning to photograph jewelry, and this gives me good ideas; thanks!
