Verdant Verdigris

Philodendron in Verdigris
These earrings were designed around a pair of fabulous enameled, philodendron-shaped leaf charms in berry and iceberg blue-green from Gardanne Beads. I love how you can see the fine veining in them! I've matched them up with lampwork spacers in copper green glass from The Spacer Bead Shop, and tiny rounds of jammy rhondonite on the earwires.

I love the juxtaposition of the jungle-like leaves with the vintage-feel verdigris color--it makes me think of an Edwardian greenhouse full of exotic specimens from far-off lands.
