|April's Challenge inspiration photo is from Pottery Barn catalog|
April's inspiration for the Earrings Everday Challenge comes from the pages of Pottery Barn. The photo is is from the sale section of that site with these sweet little Skylark plates.
What inspires me from this springy tablescape?
The plates have a darling bird with lots of curves. I love the soft leafy greens in the striped linens and the green glassware. The dark brown wood table, twisted rope placemats, the tiny golden berries, the outline of the bird bowl and the modular hammered silverware are all special to me. I decided to zero in on the browns of the table, placemates, and especially the brown bowl in the back.
|Earthy Brown Earrings with Lots of Circles|
I am struck by all of the circular shapes in the photo. The bird on the round plates, the round brown bowl, the round placemats. I have been wanting to create some of my own components for challenges so I pulled out these antiqued silver-plated filigree teardrops. I applied patina, sanded, and sealed them. The brown colors in the photo and in my earrings remind me of the rich color of the soil after it has been plowed in preparation for spring planting. These earrings are available for purchase in my Esty shop.
