This set came about because I bought a dress (this is how new jewelry patterns are often made). I pulled colors that matched months ago, but I didn't feel drawn to try to mimic the pattern of the fabric. I bought the dress for the 10 year anniversary party of the law firm I work for, Speaker Law Firm.
I have been working on sending out the invites and have been looking at the wave pattern on the invitation for months now. I decided to pull that and drop it into graph paper for a bangle.
I have been trying to make new earring designs from my bangle patterns, but on this one, I couldn't decide. The smaller pair of earrings didn't have enough statement to them, and I rather like the longer ones once they were finished. I did have black glass pearls sitting in my bead tray that really helped the design of the shorter earrings.
I'm quite happy with how this pattern turned out, and I think I may expand on it in time. Below is the dress and invite that the inspiration came from. I have been working for Liisa Speaker for 9 years now and I', very proud of the work she does in appeals and am glad I have been there to help her along as her firm has grown.
