A Garden Party...what images does that evoke? A sunny day, a lush green lawn with well-manicured flower gardens, tables with crisp white linen cloths and bouquets of fresh, fragrant flowers in simple white vases, women in elegant hats and men in dignified suits...quiet conversations sprinkled with bubbly laughter.

These earrings are created with such images in mind, but with a slightly modern flair.

I am especially proud of this series of romantic flower earrings. They are truly one-of-a-kind because...well, I make the flowers myself from various fabrics: some new, some scrap, some recycled. Each layer is cut by hand, and each flower has at least one layer from a scarf that had lived a previous life but was waiting to be reborn. All of the edges are then singed by candle flame to add dimension and a lovely crispness.

This pair is very romantic, with wispy layers of blue, yellow-y green, almost-transparent white, a bit of peach, and a tiny snippet of a floral-print scarf. The singeing has created a few tattered holes that look rustic and add a certain charm...I am reminded of Eliza Doolittle with her cockney accent and slightly ruffled appearance. A deep green swarovski crystal, surrounded by a small metal beadcap to resemble leaves, are at each flower's center.

Each flower is approximately 1.25 inches in diameter, but varies a bit due to the unpredictable singeing technique. Suspended from brass toned leverback earwires.

Needless to say, these are fabric, so please don't swim, shower, or soak in a tub while wearing them. Treat them with care, and you will enjoy them for years to come.
