Florence Flowers

I made these earrings over my Christmas break.  The crochet flowers were made by my Great,  Great,  Aunt Florence sometime around the early 1900's.  I found them while looking through her sewing box that my grandmother gave to my mother. I'm sad I could never have met her. She was an amazing woman and meant the world to her husband my Great, Great,  Uncle Joe. It's fitting I carry her in the form of these delicate earrings because they are a symbol of elegance and she was a true lady. Something I aspire to be as well.
