It's spring, and soon the lilacs will be blooming. So I decided to make my JCUIN (Jewelry Creators Unite In Numbers) collection this month in that same color. Once I started looking for items to include, I had to add orchid as well. There were so many items I wanted to include, that I had to share a few more of them here.
|Handmade Lilac Beads by Blue Morning Expressions|
These polymer clay lilac beads are soooo cute! Purple lilacs with green leaves, grass, and white picket fences. They are handmade by Julie of Blue Morning Expressions, and she has many more unique, original beads where these came from.
|Amethyst Heart Hoop Earrings by Maggie's Jewelry|
|Woven Cuff Bracelet by Irish Expressions|
|Newborn Headband by Wyvern Designs|
Spiral Aurora Borealis Earrings by Shadow Dog Design
I couldn't resist these lilac colored aurora borealis spirals in these Spiraling Rainbows earrings. They are handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Design. They seem very mystical and, since they have an AB coating, the colors change with the light. However, they apparently photograph as lilac, that was perfect for my theme this month!
Last are these unusual lilac and black dangling hoop earrings by me, available at my studio, Shanghai Tai. They feature large, vintage lucite hoops attached to sterling french wires by large sterling twist jump rings. They are a new twist on a retro look.
I hope you enjoyed this little spring preview. You may also want to visit my Lilac and Orchid collection. Hopefully we will have the real lilacs soon!
