Fire and Ice

Ice and fire - reason and passion.

It's best to keep a little of both in everything you do.

Earrings feature Arte Metal leaves in a graphic design.  Poised above them are branch beads in fiery copper and rhinestones and Czech glass in the frosty shades of ice.  A tiny flower pokes out of the top, tempered by both elements in shades of muted peach.

And a bracelet to match, using a collection of seed beads and a mirror of the earring components used as charms.

Heather Powers blogs at www.humblebeads.blogspot and her work can be found in her Etsy shop.


  1. I LOVE these earrings! Love the combination of elements--the rhinestones (!), the blackened metal, the delicious cinnamon-colored clay beads and the frosted clear glass. Fabulous!!

  2. Winter and white just have to happen. I have beenlooking at white flowers and leaves lately myself. Love the earringa and bracelet.

  3. I really love the combination of seed beads used in the bracelet! It is totally different from what I usually like, but it looks so earthy and beautiful!

  4. Love the earrings and the bracelet, both a surprise combination of Fire and Ice. The Arte metal leaves just settle it down to keep everything in balance.
    The rhinestone with the frosty white petal is awesome!
