Lucite Flower Earrings

About this design:

I was inspired by all the wonderfully beautiful spring rain and spring rain inspired dangle earrings. Thanks for the inspiration everyone! Here are my interpretation of the styles in those earrings. I used lucite flowers with Czech glass and crystals to make these earrings.

The orange pair was designed to be fun and rustic, it was inspired by tigerlilies.


Orange pair: orange lucite bellflowers (LB), blueberry and green tea Czech glass (LB), orange and fuchsia Czech glass (LB), nectarine crystal (LB), Green tea crystal (LB), copper wire Pink/Purple pair-purple lucite flowers, pink Czech glass bellflowers, Montana blue Swarovski crystals, purple crystals (LB), and purple Czech glass beads (LB), the handmade charms were then staggered on jumprings.

    Oh how beautiful,and fun! I love each pair,for different reasons.The purple and pink are neat,as they are clustered,and remind me of flowers in an Alpine garden. The Tiger Lily pair are adorable,and who doesn’t love those colors,and the bows at the top? ;) Beautiful work!

    lol-they do look like bows on the orange pair don’t they? I was going to leaves on the hanging flower, but bows work too. ;)
