Yes, I am still alive and kicking in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! And yes, it's been a long time since my last post. But I am back now, and I have a lovely pair of earrings to share. I made these blossom earrings after I received a request for a similar pair, the other pair consisting of tiny peacock pearls. The gold Swarovski pearls pair nicely with the sterling silver wire for a two-tone combination.
