Winter Flower earrings

Here are the earrings I have made to co-ordinate with my Winter Flower Necklace...

Apatite Sterling Silver Wire Flower Earrings

It's been a while since I've made a simple pair of 'wire flower' earrings and I really like the double spiral in the centre which is not alway possible to make with smaller beads. These earrings are for sale in all my online shops (Etsy, Folksy and Dawanda).

Winter Flower necklace

Last month I bought some beautiful apatite faceted rondelle beads. They are a lovely neon blue colour and I have teamed them with a delicate blue aquamarine to make this Winter Flower necklace.

Apatite & Aquamarine Sterling Silver Double Petal Wire Flower Necklace

You may recognise the 'double petal' design from my Autumn Flower necklace I made last October with different shades of carnelian. This time I chose a winter themed colour palette. I am already planning a Spring Flower necklace – what colours do you think I should use for that one?
