Earrings Everyday Firefly Inspired June Theme!  How could I resist!?






Growing up in the mid-west, fireflies or lightening bugs, have been apart of every summer in my life.  I can't think of a more beloved memory.  

I first saw these amazing hand painted firefly tube beads by Summer Wind Art and knew I had to have them.  I played around with a few ideas but unexpectedly a tribal feel came out. I had purchased some Lillypilly bone donuts in a destash but they needed some glow, so I used a gold leafing pen to jazz them up!  The pattern of swirls remind me of the dance they do in the air!


Thank you for stopping by!
