Blowing Hot and Cold

Well we've been having some very odd weather here in the UK, a tropical heat wave that brought some lovely temperatures and got us all out and about in our summer wear, not to mention the almost daily smell of barbecues - we certainly know how to make the most of it!

Alas it was not to last, we're back to spring temperatures and back in our woollies - c'est la vie!

Some new goodies to show you - 'Glacial Falls' cluster earrings with wonderful plump green amethyst briolettes and a cool Swarovski crystal mix of blues and greens.

For the next pair 'Honey Bees' I've soldered some chain to the bezel cups and set them with smoked topaz Swarovski crystal cabochons - very sweet, and just right if you don't want to wear anything too long.
This next pair are gold-filled - 'Tropicana Earrings', it was really hard work wrapping the beads on these compared to working with lovely soft fine silver! I was pleased with the colour mix though, a fruity mix of Swarovski crystals with raspberry chalcedony briolettes.

Finally a pair from a couple of weeks ago - 'Tutu Earrings', combining silver sheet and wire again, I've topped these off simply with faceted moonstone beads.

Summer Earrings

There's nothing like sunny days to get you in the mood for summer! I'm really enjoying the colour in the garden right now - one of my favourite times of the year, everything is still fresh and green, and lots of good things to come :)

The first earrings are sterling silver, hand sawn and set with carnelian cabochons, with some hot Indian Red Swarovski crystals. They have lots of swing and movement!

These cluster earrings are ever popular - and it's so much fun thinking up colour combinations! Swarovski crystal tanzanite pendants with crystal bicones, all wrapped on my own handmade fine silver headpins.

Both available in my Etsy shop - Amari Jewellery :)

And finally another splash of colour from my garden - gorgeous lemon yellow and white flowers on this beautiful shrub, how can I not be inspired! :D
