Big Spring Willow Earrings

About this design:

I made these to go with my Big Spring Willow necklace that I shared last week. (and it looks like I won the Vintaj challenge...YAY!!). I wanted to there to be lots of movement in them just like willow branches in the wind.

I included a pic of another new pair too that a similar paint job but are much simpler.


Vintaj leaf blanks that I embossed and painted with their patinas; Vintaj arte metal leaf charms, brass jumprings, earwires, chain and headpins; Swarovski crystals.

    Like both pairs, but the double leaf design is my favorite. Love the way the two shades of green come together – - -
