My inspiration for these earrings comes from my love for fairies and nymphs! Living in some of the most beautiful places in our country, I've had the opportunity to take many stunning pictures of my nature walks. And every time I hope to run into a fairy or nymph because I would surely live there if I were one! Nymphs were female spirits of the natural world, minor goddesses of the forests, rivers, springs, meadows, mountains and seas. They were the crafters of nature's wild beauty, from the growing of trees, flowers and shrubs, to the nurture of wild animals and birds, and the formation of grottos, springs, brooks and wetlands. How mystical!
