"Morning Glory", "Pink Posy", and an earring

The flower wins...
...the delicately beautiful Morning Glory has such breath-taking blues, there is no possible way I could really capture them in thread, but I have made an attempt. This was a smaller batch, so there are only a few of the larger sizes available in my etsy shop at the time of this writing. I plan to do some in the smaller sizes soon.
The dark purplish pink in "Pink Posy" is the same as the pink in "Purple Punch", so these two colors should coordinate well.
Here is an experimental earring design. I think I see a bell trying to come out! Some other ideas are occuring to me as well. This will probably resurface as several different designs, possibly even a snowflake. The thread used is size 20 from my own new batch of "Morning Glory". The pearls are 4mm, the seed beads size 11/0.

You never cease to amaze me with the shades of HDTs that you come up with. Both colours are breathtaking, maybe the Morning Glory slight more. Love them.

BTW, I have received the HDTs that you sent me. Thank you for the extra piece as well.
