Natures Earrings

On a recent trip to California I took a bunch of pictures of the beautiful desert wildlife.
I am sharing some of these to show how inspiration for jewelry pieces can be found everywhere.
The flowers on this bush, when grouped all together, kind of got lost…but I think when you separate them and focus on just one the look like delicate, dangling earrings handmade by Mother Nature.
It made me picture a thin chain with long tube beads attached…capped off by little floating crystals…what does this picture make you think about?
Does it inspire certain materials, colors, shapes?
Picture making something this shape using only wire…or all one color…or a shorter length.
Next time you are out in nature…take a closer look…or better yet…take your camera!
