This last week has been so much fun! My cousins from Australia are visiting us and the United States, and I’m getting to spend some time with my 11-month old nephew. He’s an absolute gem, and such a happy baby! Today’s PwP is inspired by him, peaceful blues and purples!
I bought these beautiful silver leaves a while ago. I was planning to use them in a pendant necklace, but then I had an idea. Do any of you also get your best ideas as you’re falling asleep? There are nights when I dream so vividly of creating interesting jewellery. Luckily, I write the ideas and dreams down, so I remember when I wake up! Of course, deciphering my midnight-half-asleep-handwriting is a whole different matter altogether!
I wanted to create a spiral loop with the leaves. They’re not very long, so they don’t make long spirals, but I managed to get them to curl around themselves very prettily. I then added the beads with some chain, so they’re peeking coyly out of the spiral.
I’m so happy with these earrings! I foresee that I’m going to wear them a lot! And my mind is still buzzing with different ways to use this spiral leaf!
Excuse me for writing such a short post today – a little boy with the cutest smile is clamouring for my attention! V is keeping him busy and happy right now, so I’ll leave you guys with a little snapshot of them hanging out over this past weekend.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
