Pink and Green Lace Flower Jewellery

I had a pink variegated cotton lace doily, that I had originally picked up at a secondhand shop, for quite a while.

It adorned a pillow as its first assignment.

A while ago I took it off the pillow, and eventually noticed that if I cut it apart, I could make a few pairs of long pink earrings.

I haven’t made a collection of lace earrings for a while now, and was in the mood to make some.

I liked the variegation, but knew I needed to add another colour as well.

As I thought about it, I remembered that I had some bits of embellished green lace, from another collection that I had done quite a while ago, and saw instantly that they would be perfect to mount on my pink lace.

What ensued was a collection of green lace flowers and trees, embellished with aurora borealis crystals, pearls, beads and sequins, which I put onto ear wires.

The lace pieces are 2 1/2″ long, so they are substantial earrings, very noticeable earrings, but they are very light because of the lace.

I had one embellished green lace flower left, and decided to mount it onto a polished rose quartz heart with a sterling silver chain. It gives the pale coloured rose quartz a little pizzazz. 🙂

Some of these earrings kind of remind me of decorated Easter eggs.

They definitely remind me of spring, and were lots of fun to make!

  2. Tamara, I’m always fascinated with the elements you put together. These finished pieces have a delicate beauty and upbeat feel that really does feel like Spring. Beautiful colors together! I also love the story of the doily and its previous assignment. 🙂

  3. Thank you, Rena! 🙂 They are quite delicate in nature. I do like pink and green together too.
