I was dying to use these wonderful leaf charms from Karen Totten. I had also had these verdigris discs by Shannon LeVart sitting on my work bench for a while, hoping to come up with some inspiration for them. Hey--Why not put them together? I added a splash of periwinkle, and little pewter leaf charms, on hand-forged sterling silver earwires.

My Etsy shop is on vacation today, as part of a protest of sorts, asking Etsy to enforce its own regulations prohibiting sellers from passing off mass-produced, commercial items as "handmade." You can visit for more information. Tomorrow you can visit my Etsy shop to see more earrings!


  1. Sweet! I love the patinated discs from Shannon.

    One of my goals for this year was to open an etsy shop, but after reading about them allowing mass made, I'm rethinking that decision.

    1. What makes it doubly frustrating is they claim not to allow it--they just have never policed it, even when multiple Etsy members report the shops for them.

  2. Etsy aggravation aside (ugh), these are awesome! The combined elements are perfect!
