Birds In The Garden Earrings

I spent Monday with my good friend and Earrings Everyday head honcho, Kristi Bowman-Gruel.  She lives about 2 hours north of me.  I brought up my clay and we had a play date together.  As you can tell, it was a very serious endeavor.
Kristi, hard at work.
Of course whenever I am with Kristi, I have to pick up a bunch of her components!
Mine, all mine!  Squeee!

As soon as I returned home, I was inspired to make these.
 They feature Kristi's copper flower components, handmade ear wires and some cute little birdie beads.  I call them "Birds in the Garden" earrings.
Spending time in your garden is good for your heart and soul.  Perhaps wearing these earrings would have a similar effect.


  1. We really must try to lighten up and have a little fun!! These earrings are adorable, I'm so happy you like working with my components! Thank you my friend!

  2. How wonderful that you two are so close! I wish i was just a teeny bit closer too! I'd be in on some of that bead lovin fun! I love Kristi's components Linda! You are a lucky girl to snatch those up! I really love your earrings! Anything with a bird now I am very partial too. Beautiful colors and they go so nicely with the brass or bronze wires! Lovely!

    1. Cindy, I'll bet you are no further from me than Kristi is - just the opposite direction. We should plan a get together too! It would be fun!

    2. We should definitely all 3 get together, sounds like Linda is a middle point!

  3. They are truly gorgeous earrings!

  4. I love all the texture and bright lovely colors! These are all beautiful pieces!

  5. Seriously cool that you got a chance to meet and play! That would be marvelous fun! I love the shapes of the components you picked up and the colors that Kristi imparts in them. I love the little earrings you created with those sweet little tweeters! Fun! Enjoy the day. Erin

  6. What fun you must have had! Super cute earrings!
