As a first warning: There a lot of pictures in this blog entry. A lot. All of them showing just a single motiv: The same earring pair.
But to take pictures of these earrings are really a super high level challenge! Problem number 1: The copper wings. They reflect the light with their shiny surface and to really catch their patina as well as colour and shine... I already complained about this long enough ;)
Challenge number 2: To catch all the subtle glow and colours in the gorgeous beads made by Julie Wong Sontag (uglibeads). Uhm....
There is not a single picture I wold say: Yay, that's it! So... I take the other road. I show a lot... with different light and shown from different view points (and in case that is not enough, just ask, I have more on my computer).
They glow, together with the wings (and a challenge I wanted to take part in but never managed it in time), were the inspiration for the fireflies...
...the difficulty to catch their true beauty, that was the inspiration for the name.
And it also even may shimmer and glow blueish!
In the end they have something magical in them. Their subtle glow, their pay of colours, the danglinh wings, the shiny surface and dark green patina, it all captures my imagination.
As soon as I can decide about the picture to use for etsy (only 5 allowed!), I will put them in my shop.
