More things that grow
I like flowers and organic-type designs, so here's another one. All in all I am pretty happy with this design: like the plants that inspired it, it grew gradually and took a while to reach its final form. I decided not to use a headpin for the bottom dangle because this way I got to use the same wire for the upper and lower sections. I quite like the slight asymmetry between the two sides: it stops the earrings looking mass-produced.
Luckily the sun came out just as I took my photo, so you can see the faceted green beads quite well here.
