Sea Flowers

I haven't been doing much creating lately...the last week has gone by in a blur!  My son started middle school, then Thursday, he had the audacity to turn 11! Imagine that!  Then it was Labor Day weekend, and my birthday, and now a week later I am back at my 9-5!

I was surfing around Pinterest and found this pretty fabric swatch from with chartreuse and blue flowers.  I thought, "hmm...this is really pretty. I think I have beads in those colors...what can I make?"

These are what I came up with...

Czech glass beads in pretty shades of blue and chartreuse green, sterling silver and some fabulous Hill Tribe silver ornate caps I forgot I had!

These colors are so calming to me...colors of the sea!  As ready as I am for Autumn weather and the rich colors the season brings,  these earrings are a reminder that summer isn't quite over yet!!

These and more of my eclectic jewelry can be found on my website, Melismatic Art Jewelry, or in my Etsy shop!


  1. These are gorgeous!!! I love how they drape like a wisteria blossom! I really like how you used the beadcap, they also remind me of a brass bell windchime. I love these colors together too (might have to do something in these colors!)

  2. Happy Belated Birthday! Lovey earring to get you back to creativity. I'm getting back in the swing with my son back to school too. He also turned 11 on the 30th :).

  3. That's always been one of my favorite color combinations. Great earrings!

  4. Beautiful earrings! I love the color combination--perfect for any season!
