Here is my inspiration piece. These earrings belonged to my great-grandma, Frieda. She was an amazing women. She called me her "sweetie peach" and I can still hear her thick Swedish accent calling me "Kimberly." Growing up I had a lot of opportunity to spend time with her and to this day, I still have very vivid memories. And considering she died when I was 6, she left quite an impression. I have been thinking of her a lot lately. On Christmas Eve we were looking at old photos and found one of Frieda at a young age. My family stopped and said, "you look like her, look at that!" I did. I really did look like her. It was a thrill! These earrings have been in my possession since she died. I keep them in my jewelry box. While browsing through decorating magazines lately, I have noticed the trend back to tarnished brass jewelry with bright jewel tones.I immediately thought of my precious keepsakes.
