These silver "triangle" earrings were inspired by the slot canyons in southern Utah & other places in the western, which are incredibly dramatic and beautiful. I have missed traveling so much over the past year - looking forward to visiting a few of these remarkable canyons in just a few weeks!!
Painted my nails is this SO COOL lavender color specifically to photograh these silver square earrings but then realized.....my cuticles are not "pretty enough". Bummer. Just crop it!!!
With family in town, we decided to go to the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans. It was wonderful as always and, as usualy, the jellyfish exhibit was one of my favorites. (Followed closely by the albino alligator and the pregnant seahorses!) Here are the earrings inspired by those oh-so-cool jellies!!
These little earrings were kind of accidental. I had a new shaping tool and was playing around with it using some large jumprings I had on hand - when this fun shape happened, I loved it so much. I textured them, added a tiny jumpring at the top (for those who don't like their earrings to "flip"....) and, Bob's your uncle - new earrings! Click here to shop these new silver earrings!
