    Beautiful earrings Becky! I love the colors and how you included those ceramic drops. I never would have thought of that combo. Brilliant!

    Gail Layne says:

    I agree with Julie, I would have breezed right by those drops. What you’ve done with them is fantastic! Deb’s spot on about the flowers too. Love how you layer them and they just fill out your piece. Mine stick out like a sore thumb and just look dorky so I end up taking them off. This is going in my “to be stolen” file (if you don’t mind, that is?)

    Love how these turned out!

    And….you have now made me want Petra’s stuff even more!……think I’m going to have to just give in make the purchase! :-)

    Petra is Scorched Earth on Etsy. She makes the most deliciously creative ceramics.

    Yes, Dave lectured me 2 days ago but I am buying more today. :) Petra made some dragon wings just for me and I am buying the “monster” from her shop. Check them out!!

    I have a bunch more little drop pairs from her that are sitting each in their own teacup with Czech glass chosen especially for them. Earrings galore. :)

    I can’t wait to see what you make, Asia!! :)
