Spring color: denim

Hello peeps,

Hopefully you're all enjoying a gorgeous Spring. As I understand there is even a heat wave in the UK. Here in Greece spring is in full bloom but the last couple of days we had some really heavy rainfall. Which is perfect for nature, as we haven't had rain in quite some time.

Whatever the season, whatever the weather, denim is always the right color.


These earrings are made with blue fossil coral, vintage German glass beads and of course handmade copper ear wires by my very talented and immensely funny friend and twinney Lucy Haslam of Faerystones. These will be available in my shop in a couple of days.

Wishing you all a wonderful Spring day, full of laughter, wonderful flowers, singing birds and love.
See you next month. 
Thanks for looking and you know I love to read your comments so don't be shy and leave some words.

  6. Janine, these are stunning! I've never seen two pieces of fossil coral as beautiful as they are. The vintage German!!! Wow!! And rather than select a color that would contrast and take away from the beauty of the stones, selecting the icy glass was the perfect choice, imho. Stunning! And that is something I will remember when it comes to denim blue. I have a difficult time working with it; always have. This will help. Thank you!! <3 Hugs. Miss you.

    1. Thank you Norbel. To be honest, I wasn´t too sure about not adding a contrasting color. I was afraid the earrings would look a bit boring. But I am glad I stuck to the german glass.
