If there is one season that makes me want to sing, it is Spring. I love the "rebirth" of the Earth, growing plants, blooming flowers, trees sprouting leaves, and the fields of wheat so green they make your eyes hurt to look at them. I really love the change of all the seasons as I find it a wonderful spur to my creativity to look at the seasons and make jewelry accordingly. But SPRING is my very favorite! Here are a few lovely things I found on Pinterest and wanted to share with you that make me think SPRING!
