Feeling Bulb-ous

I may jinx us all by saying this, but I think Spring is here. Yes, we may have more freezing nights, maybe even a stray dusting of snow, but for the most part, I think the "great thaw" and the sunshine are here to stay for the next 7-8 months.

On Monday it was 70F here in Ohio, so I was out hopping around in the yard clearing out dead plant material from last year and making way for the all the wee spring bulbs poking through the mess. Snowdrops, crocus, wild iris, species tulips, allium - all beautiful hues of purple and green. 

crocus from my yard

So when trying to decide on which earrings to post about today, my eye went straight to this bulby springy pair. The beautiful crocus purple of NuminosityBead's lampwork glass beads just pops against the crusty crubbly muted background of dark verdigris and soft moss. I reversed the direction of the stack and threw in some ancient Roman glass, ratty old metal, wood, and artful wire wrapping. 


I hope you've had some sunshine and balmy weather in your neck of the woods this week. It does the soul good :)

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Those are so magnificent! I love the crusty with the bright - like a garden :)
    Hooray for spring!!! We have wee little peeks of daffodils and the like starting to peek through here in Delaware (the state). Cannot wait for that warmer weather to stick around.

  2. Spring is nature's way of reminding us of hope! Love the meaning behind these pretties.

  3. Absolutely stunning Nikki! I love the mix of the ancient and new on this set. A perfect pairing! The lampwork beads really do pop and really set them off! Lovely!

  4. Gorgeous earrings! I love the rustic look of them.

  5. Those earrings knock me out, they're gorgeous Nikki! Enjoy your day...

  6. I love the flash of brightness in Kimberly's gorgeous beads and the way you put it all together is gorgeous!
