Hello! I'm Nathalie Lesage, and this is my first submission for this fabulous blog. I'm a fan, and very happy to be here!
Spring!! Where is Spring?
Between the icy cool mornings and the promising blue skies, the month of March always keeps us guessing.
But I love March, as just like nature starts to wake up in anticipation of Summer, my imagination does the same :)
My inspiration for my design today is two-fold - I was participating in a challenge with my SRAJD group and our challenge for the week was "Circles".
I wanted to incorporate Circles and March together - and thus, my choice of gemstone was a no-brainer: The birthstone for March... Aquamarine!
I mixed the two inspirations and ended up with these earrings :)
I soldered and textured the two sizes of hoops, and 'patiently' (very patiently!) wire wrapped 38 luscious top quality Aquamarine gemstones, including a pair of fancy "ring cut" (pointy back) pear shaped drops. I finished the look with a pair of my handcrafted circular shaped ear wires.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
