Showcase: Waterfall Earrings

Is there anything better than being near water? Ocean waves breaking on the beach, the thunderous sound of a waterfall, or a burbling brook, they all bring peace and contentment.

If you haven’t figured it out yet I love water. The sound, smell, and feel of it. The glitter of sunlight sparkling on the surface… Is there a better gift in the world that we have been given?

These are the images I had in mind when I created the Waterfall earrings. I could envision the water dancing over the rocks of a stream and splashing upward in joy. I could hear it laughing as it rushed by. The stream I refer to is one I had fished with my husband last spring. I never had a bite and after a while I reeled in the line and laid the pole aside so I could just sit and listen to the water. He wandered downstream while I stayed on my boulder and absorbed the sound of the giggling water, the smells of the forest, and the warmth of the sun on my face. It was glorious.

Thinking back on that day I used the aqua blue glass beads and golden whorls to represent the water actions. The droplets splashing and catching the sunlight as it cascaded over the rocks and the circular motions of the eddies in the protected areas. These earrings are gorgeous and glow when they catch the light. I only wish that I could see them as I wear them! But I know they’re happily swinging from my earlobes and catching people’s attention.

Most of my selection of earrings have leverbacks. I’m terrible at keeping ear wires from falling out of my ear and have lost many well-loved earrings in years past. I do make some with ear wires because they lend a certain look to some designs. I recommend using the little rubber stoppers on the backs of the wires to help prevent loss. But if you want either type— leverback or ear wire— I’m happy to accommodate. Drop a note in your order at the link below. Happy browsing! 👩🏻‍💻
