I was thinking of that humungous cedar when I made these earrings.
The brown ceramic hoops by Marsha Neal, represent the reddish-brown wood of the Western Red Cedar.
The swirling green, muted purple, black and cream of the lampwork by Beads and Botanicals, represents the cedar branches, moss and all the lush forest growth. I topped the earrings by my own handmade ear wires that echo the round shape of the ceramic hoops.
If you ever have an opportunity to visit Washington's rainforests, don't pass it up. You'll be glad you went!
