One of my best gal buddies Karen aka “Karebare” has asked me to make 2 pairs of earrings. One light blue and dangly, and the other in darker blue and dangly. Both simple. I knew that making this would be a challenge since our taste is so opposite! I tried my best to stick to what I think she likes. By the time I was done, I was suprised at how much I liked it, and I thought “oh no! if I like it, that might mean that Karen might not like it.” We’ll have to wait and see!

These pretty pair of earrings features a light seagreen Czech flower as the focal bead. Silver colored wire was strung through and hammered flat to create a spiral flower bud. Accented with a clear 4mm Swarovski crystal to add extra sparkle. Connecting the flower piece, I additionally used two blue and one clear 4mm Swarovski crystals to create more color accents and sparkle.

Update: Hooray! Karen loves them 🙂
