Spring Daisy Earrings


We’re All Ears :: March

Welcome to the Earrings Everyday Blog Hop!   Earrings Everyday hosts a monthly earring challenge and blog hop.  We post a picture on the Earrings Everyday blog to inspire your earring designs and then one month later we have a blog hop to see what everyone has made!

Here is the picture for March.

March Inspiration Picture.

My earrings were inspired by the flowers on the quilt and in the tapestry.  The earrings aren’t the same colors as in the picture, but I had the orange lampwork flowers on hand and I had fun layering the flowers.

Daffodil Earrings

The cream colored centers remind me of the trumpet centers of daffodils.  Our previous house had a big field in the back, where over the years, my husband planted over one thousand daffodils for me.  At this time of year we had bouquets of daffodils in nearly every room and a big bouquet at work, too.  Every spring I think of our field of daffodils and how that was one way in which my husband said “I love you.” to me.

  1. Spring and love. Can’t beat that combination! I love the story of your husband and the daffodils, as I am looking at the daffs blooming in my garden right now. Spring is the best time of year. The orange in your cute earrings just makes me smile.

  2. Lovely earring design. I’m curious…do you have a trick for getting center-hole components like these to hang correctly? I’ve been fiddling with a pair of lucite flowers with center holes for the past week and no matter what I do, they tip forward once they’re all wired up so they don’t hang right.

    • I’d never made stacked flowers like these before and I struggled with that problem too. In fact, I’m still not satisfied with the mechanics of this pair of earrings, which is why I won’t place them in my shop till I get that figured out. If anyone reading this has a suggestion for Kelly and I, we’d love to hear it!

  3. these are so adorable and they are perfect with the inspiration from which they came! Love your designs! xox jean

  4. Daffodils are one of my favourite flowers. We’re supposed to get 6 inches + of snow tomorrow, so it will be a while before I see the real thing in my garden – your earrings are a lovely little pick-me-up.
