I have been playing with flower forms lately. I made these for my mother for Mother's Day.I really like the tulip form from The Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald. That was the starting point for these earrings.
They are done in Delicas (c) with sterling sliver findings, and are worked in herringbone.
The bead coming out of them are these gorgeous little vintage drops. I think they are German, 1930's. They are clear, but one side of each is silvered with an aurora borealis finish.
