Color Inspiration - Blue Puya Double Drop Earrings
by Kristal Wick
Flowers and plants have some of the most inspirational color pallets on the planet and The Blue Puya is no exception! A terrestrial Bromeliad related to the Pineapple from the Chilean Andes Mountains, has leaves 3 feet long and the flowers are tall stalks. This crazy plant only blooms every 5-8 years. With these intense colors, it looks like it's worth the wait to me, how about you?
Double drop earrings have been trending for quite a while now and I've been itching to make some. You only need 2 holes per ear lobe! When I saw the Blue Puya image and color pallet, I knew this would be a fun project to design! You could make these earrings using a post finding instead of the hoops I used in this sample. It depends on your aesthetic.

You can also alter the chain lengths to adjust to your ear-lobe to neck ratio! Some women have longer necks and can wear longer chain lengths comfortably, others not so much. I used very small lightweight chains in this design so the weight wouldn't be too heavy. One of the great things about this project is you can mix and match your crystal colors and chains for endless color combos.

Creatively,
Kristal
