For a long time I have wanted to create earrings with a vintage feel and incorporate crochet work somehow into the design, but I was struggeling to achieve the desired expression. But suddenly, a few days ago, just before I went to bed, a vision of these earrings popped up in my head and today was the day to try and see if my idea would work! This was the first pair I made (with two pairs of wristwarmers awaiting the last finish in the background):
I tried different types of yarn but ended up using the same yarn as for the wristwarmers - it is thin and delicate but also a bit fluffy, and I actually like the contrast between the dainty filigree flower charms, the smooth gemstones and the textured yarn. I´m really pleased with the results! What do you think?
I was sitting in the conservatory the whole day and enjoyed working on these earrings so much! It´s such a gorgeous place, especially now in the winter where there´s a lack of natural light inside the house. Great place to work!
