Bead Soup Celebration 💗

Spring comes early to Sacramento, here by the beautiful blue American River.  Things start to bloom in February--sometimes even earlier--and I've been getting the urge to make something colorful.  And bright.  And Boho.  And swingy.  And long.

Really long.   Shoulder-sweeper long.  😊  

So I pulled out some small, brightly colored beads and searched through my box of chain and came up with the perfect bead soup ingredients:  turquoise rice beads, dyed jade rondelles, faceted purple agate rounds, ocean blue jasper, multicolored faceted agate rounds, bright fuchsia Czech glass rounds, tiny brass hexagons, Japanese seed beads, and Swarovski crystals.  

I especially liked this soldered brass chain, with its large and small twisted links, because of its airiness and the way the shape of the large links mirrors the shape of the turquoise beads:



I've been busy lately with several custom orders, but these  earrings wouldn't let me rest.  They insisted that I finish them--and who was I to argue?  


The Celebration Earrings can be found
 at Two Trees Studio.

Cheers, my friends!  Happy creating, and thanks for reading!  I'll see you again in a couple of weeks.  💗

xoxo

    1. They're so lightweight too, Kare, that they move really nicely, and you don't feel like you have some big clunky thing in your ears even though they are long. Dancing would be fun for sure! Thanks, my love!

    1. Aww, thanks, Mary! I was thinking when I was making them that after all our cold weather, we need some color! I'm ready for springy weather, and a Boholicious-colorific pair of earrings were called for! I'm so glad you like them. 💗 :)

  4. Those are the cutest earrings... I love the American River. When my dad lived in Carmichael, we would go to the Regatas. Best times right that... Have a great day.

    1. Thanks so much, Chelle! Our house is in the La Riviera area and backs up against the levee road, so we're a short walk from the river. The Regattas sound like fun! Hope your day is a great one too! 💗
