Imagination is a wondrous thing, often one little thought or image can send a person down curious pathways that conjure up all manner of interesting notions. While creating these earrings, I was diverted by the image of a dreamy young women’s absorption with the idea of travelling back in time to Paris, during La Belle Époque period. I imagined her voraciously reading up on the era, fascinated by the culture, art, music, and fashions, alive in that brilliant artistic climate. These musings have a lot to do with the gorgeous, vintage Art Nouveau inspired, handmade brass flower pendants, that are the focal point in these beautiful earrings. I paired them up with deep teal faceted Czech crystals, and gold filled ear wires, to add a little “Ooh la la to these 2 1/2 inch long lovelies.
