100 Pairs in 100 Days - Week Two

My theme for this week’s earrings is the subtle beauty of Winter Gardens.

Hand formed rose gold earwires. Copper Rose domed rounds by KristiBowman Design.

My inspiration photo comes from The Guardian. If this quiet spot was in my own backyard, I don’t think I could stop myself from lingering overlong at the window throughout the day just for the pure inspiration.

Love the muted pinks and purples, the sophisticated greys and browns, and the wealth of textures in this winter garden.

Handmade sterling earwires. Porcelain clay rustic leaf shapes by Ragged Robyn

Oh, and the gamut of greens, from yellow-greens to blue-greens.

My final pairs are inspired by the warm spots of color in the scene’s earthenware pots.
