The Daily Post’s photo challenge this week asks participants to share their muse – a subject you repeatedly draw inspiration from. For me, a huge source of inspiration is looking at beads and playing with combinations until something catches my eye. And I’ve noticed that I tend to return to the same colors over and over: blues and greens, often combined with silver. To give you an example, I thought I’d share the inspiration process behind the latest listing in the Etsy shop: a beautiful pair of blue and green earrings with silver-plated seahorse charms.
Aren’t these little silver charms adorable? I found them a few days ago, and fell in love:
I decided to use them to make a pair of earrings, so I brought out some of my favorite blue and green beads to see which would best complement the charms:
I picked out a pair of iridescent crystal teardrop beads that I think are simply stunning when paired with the silver charms, and then added a few other beads in shades of green and blue to finish the look:

I think the finished earrings are quite lovely! What do you think?
Head on over to the shop and take a look!
