The month of August is the month of my birthday, and what I love most about this month is the sight of the mature greenery and all the flowers in bloom. I love to stroll and take in all the gorgeous flowers that I see in all the gardens, as well as the wild flowers that bring a touch of colors sometimes in unsuspected places...
I absolutely had to make a pair of earrings to represent August Flowers:
I made a pair of .999 Fine Silver hoops on which I have wire wrapped some stunning Fancy Cut (faceted kite shaped) Tsavorite Garnets, AAA micro-faceted lilac amethyst gemstones and gorgeous berrilicious Pyrope Garnets.
I have also added some sun-catching faceted sterling silver beads near the top, and stamped a small leaf under the wrapped area.
All handmade from scratch, including the .925 sterling silver ear wires... these are my August Flowers earrings.
I wish you all a great remainder of August... enjoy the flowers while we still have them. Winter will be coming too fast.
