“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~Mark Twain

 My heart yearns for warm sunshine and blossoms at this time of year.  And nature fulfills that longing with abundance.  Tulips, daffodils and hellebores.  Lilacs, cherry blossoms and crocus.  A walk through the garden brings such a feast of color and beauty!

For many of us this outpouring of color translates into the urge to create.  I have gathered some jewelry components here to help you fulfill that urge.  Set one of these beauties out on your work table, find out which beads in your stash are clamoring to join the party and let your designer’s heart blossom!  

I’m also offering up some finished jewelry that you might enjoy for yourself or perhaps for a Mother’s Day or Graduation gift.

This Emerald Amulet Bag with a Stitched Flower would make a great ready-made Mother’s Day gift.  It was made by Lindsay Starr of Phantasm Creates.

Turquoise and Peach Flower Earrings by yours truly (Linda Landig Jewelry).  These earrings feature bronze flowers by AJE member, Lesley Watt.
I hope you feel inspired now!  If it is warm enough where you live, try sitting in the sun while you are beading.  Wishing you sunshine, blossoms and happiness!  Till next time-
Linda Landig
