Solar Flare Blog Hop

  In September Sam from Ultimate Supplies decided to start a new blog with a blog hop. He took this gorgeous photo during a sunset and based the challenge around it: the participants needed to create a unique piece of jewelry inspired by it:

  As these are totally my colours I decided immediately to join. At the time when I was thinking about what to make a package with some supplies I've ordered before arrived. When I was sorting the materials I was hooked by these marmorine drop perles and the twin beads in a similar colour. I added some of the amethist Miyuki beads and here is the pair of earrings I made:

It's the first time I'm using the twin-beads and the pattern would need some more improvements, but I think the marmorine effect recalls the colours of the sunsets and specially the solar flare quite well.
