February Art Bead Scene Blog Tour

I am always excited when the blog tour is posted.  I feel like a little kid looking to see the comment about the piece I submitted.  Here is the comment for my piece this month:

"I love the unexpected used for those things we take for granted.  Buttons in particular fascinate me.  I have loads of them but none as pretty as the buttons that Miss Angela used for her pretty boho chic earrings."

Bermuda Teardrop earrings

These earrings are my submission for the February Art Bead Scene blog challenge.

The buttons are handmade by  The color is Bermuda blue.  I noticed a hint of blue in the clothing which is why I selected these buttons.  The frosted glass teardrops  incorporate the red from the inspiration piece.
