Green, hopefully....please?

I have been so inspired by thoughts of Spring this last week!

These "hopeful" green earrings are a combination of some borosilicate glass beads created by a fellow Frederick, MD glass artist, Julie Delaney, and I chose them a while ago for their lovely, muted shades of all-time favorite color!  I created the sterling and faceted green agate components after a wonderful workshop with Richard Salley, where I learned to solder bezel cups and set tiny cabochons.  In my quest for the perfect, Spring-like, green creation, I paired the 2 and came up with these!

We haven't really had a bad winter here in Maryland, but for some reason, I am totally ready for new shoots of green to spring from the ground.  They actually have here and there on warmer days...I know they will die back when the big snow/cold finally hits here, but they are always a hopeful sign!
