We're all Ears ~ Creative Challenge

This adorable Beatrix Potter illustration
was the inspiration
 for this months "We're all Ears" 
Earring challenge over at Earrings Everyday.
Yeah Spring is here!
Well, on the Calendar at least.
So looking forward to an end to this winter!
Anyway, lovin' colors and flowers in the illustration.
 So much so I made two pairs of earrings this time.
Hardly visible are the paddle head pins I used. 
It  reminded me of the needle in the mouses hand. 
I'm loving how the post portion of the 
second pair of earrings
mimics the diamond pattern of the quilt.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out
what I came up with.
To see what the other participants did just click
on the Earrings Everyday link above.
Thank You Erin for the motivation to
dig around in the things I have
and make something.

Both pairs are so unique! I love the detail you included about the paddle head pin and the needle in the illustration. The connector in the first pair is lovely with the choice of beads. I am very much drawn to the second pair. Such clever use of components and gorgeous colors. Very creative!

You did a wonderful job on both pair, they are beautiful. I love the connectors in the first pair, and also how you captured the colors so well in both. Perfect!

Both pairs have such great designs. I love that the connectors in the first pair resemble the pattern of the embroidery and the layered flowers at the bottom of the second pair remind me of big flower in the upper right of the illustration.
