Bay Moon Design's Latest Earrings for AJE Earrings Challenge and Mother's Day Sale

Bright Pink Flower Earrings are available in BayMoonDesign Etsy Shop
I have been missing from action in the AJE Earring Challenge for a week or so due to the lovely weather in the Florida Keys.  It is spring here and there are lots of gorgeous flowers in bloom and the gorgeous turquoise waters are warming. Some of my latest earrings are inspired by both the water and the flowers.  

These fun, pink floral earrings are inspired by the hibiscus that are in bloom here. The artisan pink flower earrings have a beautiful bright pink bead caps by SharylsJewelry.

These bead caps surround large clear crystals.   I think you will agree that with a rich color like this and beautiful filigree brings out the clear crystals shine.  A sweet Lucite flower hangs from there. The Lucite flower has a bright pink crystal bead and green seed bead to add some additional color.

Long Pink Earrings available in my Etsy shop

These are handmade artisan pink flower earrings with purple highlights on copper earwires. The petals of the flowers are purple in the center and pink on the outside. They are handmade and enameled by MelismaticArtJewelry. The very center of the flowers has another artisan component made of pink and lime green glass on copper wire. The flowers hang from copper wire with what looks like a vine made from copper. Copper earwires are used. These are long earrings that are 2.5 inches from the curve at the top of the copper earwire.   I love how they look like pretty pink flowers hanging from a long vine.

Ivy Earrings Available for purchase in BayMoonDesign shop
These are amethyst earrings with olive green ivy leaves on brass earwires. The amethyst swarovski crystals remind me of purple flowers that are in bloom by ivy. The handmade artisan ivy leaves by GardannieBeads are enameled on both sides and are 25 x 16mm. Brass earwires and headpins are used. These are long earrings that are 2 inches from the curve at the top of the earwire.

Blue Crystal Earrings available in BayMoonDesign Etsy Shop
These earrings were inspired by my latest snorkeling trip in the Florida Keys.  There are so many different shades of blue in the water here.  They range from turquoise blue to navy blue.  Every time that I see the turquoise it amazes me and takes my breath away.

These blue earrings are made with handmade artisan dichronic glass and sparkling blue swarvoski crystals suspended on chain. Each crystal is meticulously wire wrapped. Large contemporary sterling silver earwires add to the sophisticated look of these earrings. The beautiful dichronic bead has tiny swirls of royal blue, dark blues, and black.
