When I say that February’s We’re All Ears Inspiration is absolutely gorgeous – it is an understatement, but I cant a find a better word than that. Erin has enticed even the reluctant of us beaders to participate in this anniversary edition by choosing the Malaysian artist and photographer Lim Zhi Wei (a.k.a Limzy) whimsical flower girl prints (for a calendar) as our inspiration. These stylised photo illustration have made me realise how I can make illustration fun for my Fashion communication students and my head is spinning with possibilities – however none with respect to making jewelry – sigh!
Though I am more of a leaf than a flower person when it comes to jewelry design, I do love them and use a lot of them in my accessories, cards and arrangements that I make for family. I chose rose as my inspiration – I didnt know about birth month flowers before this but mine turned out to be roses. No wonder I am so attracted to them.
Let me say that I am by no measure doing any justice to the inspiration with my design; but I really wanted to take part because I loved it so much. So here one altered Lucite flower earrings and one paper flower earrings from a wedding set I made. Will post the full set soon – it was a gorgeous 10 piece wedding flower jewelry set maybe with mulberry flowers
Peach Flores Earrings – These long chain earrings are created using Peach lucite flowers altered with gold acrylic paint and alcohol ink, Sealed and wire wrapped with a wire bead.
