Both of these pairs of earrings were inspired by where i grew up  in north Florida / Southern Georgia. Where the North has sleek and sophisticated , the South has ornate and more romantic ...I love both . But sometimes, in those moments when I feel like I would absolutely KILL for some sweet tea , the South edges ahead ever so slightly .






( vintage antique brass swallows, vintage czech glass magnolia-esque blossom, firepolished crystal , brass pressed leaves , and smoky quartz all on vintage brass findings .)






( the wood beads  reminded me  of my mothers gorgeous diningroom rug( a southern home staple!).Painted wood capped in brushed brass, firepolish crystal ,  lampwork spacers in ivory, accnete with pressed antigue brass leaves ...all on antique brass findings.)


Thanks so much for looking!

Those are really awesome! I would definitely wear them. I like how you mixed the different trinkets. Good job!

These are so pretty!!! Cheesy  Could I ask where you got the ear wires from?  I've been looking for some in that shape, but i don't seem to be having any luck.
