So it's Bonfire Night here in the UK today. This is a big deal -bonfires and firework displays all over the country, the loud noises terrifying small animals....It's all to remember a time in the 17th century when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Four hundred years later, and we are still celebrating. We Brits are a funny bunch!

Anyway, onto these earrings! I took the theme of fireworks, and found these beautiful enamels with bursts of colour from Emily of 2Moiselles.
 I really love these colours and the sense of upward movement in them (perfect fireworks!). I wanted to accentuate that sense of upward movement, so added some brass ovals to act as a frame, then some sections of brass chain and coordinated seed beads. Little tails of colour

 And one more photo -hanging up

Hope you like them. They'll be in the shop soon, and possibly in  my next showcase on The Earrings Show in Facebook Land. See you in a couple of weeks


  1. They’re gorgeous!! Not looking forward to the fireworks, it’s a nightmare getting the kids to sleep 🤣

  2. So much texture and yummy color! They really do feel like a firework exploding in the night sky! Enjoy the day. Erin

  3. Beautiful design - the feelings of celebration really come across!!

    When color-burst earrings were wrought..."

    And they're beautiful, Sue--a wonderful design and so very like the bursting fireworks in the photo. 💗 xo
