Spring Has Sprung in the AJE Earring Challenge and My Etsy Store

Butterfly Earrings by BayMoonDesign Available on Etsy
These earrings combine polymer clay beads that look like little branches. These little branch beads are by polymer clay artist Humblebeads. I love all of her intricate detailing on the beads. Below these beads are rings of copper. Copper earwires are used for a uniform look.

These earrings are inspired by nature. They remind me of a walk in the woods in the spring.

Bright Pink Earrings by BayMoonDesign are for sale in Etsy store
The artisan pink earrings have a beautiful bright pink patina and sealant added to raw brass earring dangles and suspended from gold colored earwires.  The filigree is approx 30mm tall and 25mm at the widest part and the patina was applied by SharylsJewelry.  I think you will agree that with a rich color like this and beautiful filigree nothing else need be added to these earrings. 

These earrings are inspired by the hyacinth starting to come up in my spring garden.

Christ of the Abyss in Key Largo, Florida

I am amazed that I am still on target with this blog hop especially with all of the distractions here in the beautiful Keys.   I love to snorkel and Christ of the Abyss is a gorgeous spot.  My trip was cut short when I spotted a 5 foot Caribbean reef shark not to far from this spot.  I made a quick exit to the boat.

A bonus for my readers!  I am offering a 10% discount in my Etsy store between now and April 7.  Just use the code FFAWEAW when you check out.  Happy Spring!
