We're All Ears Inspiration Blog Hop

I found out about this challenge last weekend and thought about my design all week. I really needed some inspiration and a deadline because I haven't been making much jewelry the last few months year. 

For my pair of earrings, I was inspired by the colors from the dragonflies in the challenge picture. The dangling columns are also reminiscent of segments on the dragonflies.
