Bracelet and Earrings Made Just for St. Patrick's Day

Well, our next "jewelry" holiday is St. Patrick's Day.  I have dedicated some pieces in my shop that would be appropriate for St. Pat's day but this is the only set I am planning to make especially for St. Patrick's Day.  It is a charm bracelet with lots of green beads, some with four petal flowers and some capped and a few little green glass beads that I've had for awhile that had a gold shamrock on them.  I also attached a shamrock charm.

I made matching earrings as well.

 You will notice that I put in a little red glass ladybug bead.  Two reasons:  1)  I love the little surprise of bright red color amidst all that green.  2) It makes the bracelet just as appropriate for wear all summer long with the flowers, and leaves, and the bug.
How many of you out there are Irish?

My father was, god bless him, he was a Cork man, I miss him, but will have a toast for him on St.Patrick's.

Okay Jean I've got a mix for you - Irish on my father's side and Russian on my mothers. It made for some interesting arguements. LOL -Sharon
