Winter Flowers

Inspired by the subtle shades of winter, I made these Czech flower beads the focal point of my rustic copper earrings. The flowers are a granite color with hints of green and blue, and accents of rusty brown. Accompanied by copper ovals that are also in a floral motif, wasabi green rondelles and darkened copper wire that I have loosely wrapped around the flowers for a casual look.

We are coming into the time of year when a warm weather vacation would be a welcome change. I love this Ralph Lauren crochet outfit, and it would be perfect with my winter flower earrings.

  1. These are so cool!! I love stacked beads and lots of wrapping and these have all of that!! LOVE!

  2. Beautiful earrings. I love the stacked and wrapped design!

  3. I love your wire wrapping on these. I'm trying to figure out where the hole is on those beads...ingenious!

    1. These surprised me because I did not realize that they were double drilled until I already had the wire cut.

  4. Beautiful! I have some of those flowers - love what you've done with them!

  5. Really pretty! I love the design and the way you've wrapped them. I would totally wear that outfit you picked out with these. So beachy, summer, casual - but would work any time of year. I'm feeling really inspired. :-)
