Color Inspiration - Daisy Chain Earrings
by Kristal Wick

I've had a trip to Italy on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Seeing images and hearing about the culture, artisans, landscape and of course the food sounds like sheer heaven to me. Once I read the book and saw the movie, Eat, Pray, Love, I was beyond determined to get there! I finally booked my trip the year before COVID hit and sadly, the trip ended up getting cancelled! I booked the same trip a year later and spent the entire year filled with hope this time it would be a go! Nope, cancelled again due to COVID and the war in Ukraine. So, I've put that dream on hold for now and made peace with it (kind of) by creating jewelry this year inspired by gorgeous images of Italy!
These earrings were inspired by this stunning image of Portofino, Liguria. The beautiful colors of that coastline simply delights the heart don't you think? I used one inch pieces of the Daisy Chain Pattern Wire for the base. Hammered a little texture on the edges, brought out the pattern design with some patina and added a splash of sparkle with wire wrapped crystals. I played with the design idea of adding more crystals but didn't want to distract from the busy wire pattern. They're a quick and fun project to make with endless color combinations. And maybe I'll even get to wear them in Italy... SOMEDAY!
