The Earring Whisperer: Journey 3 Inspiration ::: Meet The Bees ::: The Artwork of Jessie Fritsch

Hello, I’m Loralee Kolton, a.k.a The Earring Whisperer ~ thank you for stopping by!

Journey 3 features the art of Jessie Fritsch. This challenge couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m shaking off the doldrums of winter and welcoming spring!

The vibrancy of Jessie’s work is stunning! As I began looking through my art beads to see what grabbed me – I kept pulling enamel pieces without even realizing I had a sort of theme started.

Honey Hive

The amazing vintage glass “hives” were actually an afterthought. I had finished a completely different design for the bees when I discovered them in my stash and had that aha moment.

I adore the shapes of these two components together and the richness of the copper next to the green.

Bee Kind

Bumblebee ceramic focal by Natalie Fletcher Jones of https://www.facebook.com/peruzi.net/

The chubbiest little bumble ever. I gave him a honeycomb rhinestone drop for a little sparkle and attached little brushed gold droplets of honey.

I feel as though I’ve been busy as a bee! Phew! Hope you enjoyed it and inspired to play along with Journey 3!

All my best,
