Now we are leaving the winter behind and the spring is on it's way. It is a wonderful and magical transformation that takes place in nature. The days are getting noticeably longer every day, and the sky is bright blue most days. Spending time outdoors is like taking showers in sunlight. Very much needed and longed for after the dark winter period. And the first buds and greens are starting to show. It is a beautiful wonder every year.
Not that I had it in mind when I started making these earrings, but now as they are finished I realize they are a tribute to this very season. I often find that nature and my immediate surroundings have inspired me subconsciously when I make my jewelry.

Visitors of Sweden around this time of the year are known to notice an odd phenomenon in the streets in the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest point. People who are outdoors are stopping just anywhere where the sun shines, but preferably against a wall, and they will raise their faces against the sun, standing still for 5-10 minutes as if they were worshipping the sun itself. It looks odd to foreigners, but to us it is completely natural. :-)
All my best,
