Spring Flowers Earring Style from Mimi

Mimi of
is a fellow beader and from Georgia.  
She had written to me that she was coming to our Southern Belle Retreat.  She makes the most original stunning pieces of jewelry.  
I had asked about a couple of pieces that she had designed and she was so generous in sending me this lovely gift.  She had sewed a dainty bookmark into a package and embroidered my "S" initial.  
Isn't it absolutely the sweetest little package? 
She filled the bookmark with all of these lovely acrylic flowers. 
It also included some metal stems so all I had to do is a quick couple of pair of ear rings. 
This is what I came up with. 
 I find it very hard to use the flowers as they are so beautiful. 
Don't they look just like spring? 
I love them so much! 
I am going to make a bracelet for spring and hope to get it finished while I am at the beach next week.  Because Mimi is coming to our get together April 10th and I want to show her how much they were and are appreciated. 
I had just gotten in some beautiful size 4 rondelle AB beads and some purple crystals from China. 
 They matched perfectly! 

Thank you, Mimi, for such a thoughtful and creative gift. 
I am getting so excited to meet everyone in Hoschton, GA. in a couple of weeks!!! 
Yikes! 
Just two weeks and I am going to be gone for one week to the beach with my daughter and grand daughters for a week away to bead, swim and bead some more. 
I have my name tag all made but the hanging of the beads from the heart. 
I will try to post another time to show you some of the pieces I have been working on.  I don't want to make my posts so long that you will get bored but I have so much going on.
Blessings to all and thank you again, Mimi, for the sweet gift.
