A Gentle Winter

Snow on Sagebrush
The colors in these earrings make me think of snow on sagebrush--a high desert winter. A gentler kind of winter. A Cathy Lee Crosby-riding-a-horse-in-a-Velamints-commercial kind of winter. The celadon-hued ceramic gear links are by Karen Totten--I love the matte finish, with hints of light blue and amber at the edges, and the gingerbread-brown stoneware-feel interior. They do indeed make me think of the desert. And Cathy Lee Crosby. The sandstone-colored lampwork spacers are from The Spacer Shop. It had to be sterling silver with my winter theme--so I took my torch to some sterling wire and made headpins and earwires, and capped the lampwork with little Hill Tribes beadcaps.
