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

Lovely enamel bumblebeee discs by Anne Gardanne of

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.

The fabric wrapped beads in this design look so much like dandelions! It’s a floral celebration for sure!

Golden Pollination

I love the bold clean contemporary lines of this pair; they have a beautiful Asian feel as well.

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

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,

Loralee XO
