Early one morning, as the sun was just cresting the horizon, I saw a beautiful sight. Droplets of rain clung to every single pine needle and they danced and sparkled in the gentle breeze. It looked as though the entire forest wore a cloak of jewels.

I made these earrings to capture that sight. Emerald green Czech glass for the needles, modern speckled glass for the bark, and a beautiful faceted spiral for the rain.

The shepherd hooks are nickel free sterling silver (.925) imported from Israel.
The green Czech glass beads are imported directly from the Czech Republic, where they have been made with the same method for over 100 years.

The earrings were handmade by myself, in the mountains of Idaho. Each earring is made of individually chosen beads carefully selected to balance and compliment each other. I then gently wrap each head pin to make sure everything stays secure for years to come.

I have this piece for sale on Etsy: www.etsy.com/listing/847777392…
