Turning Heads Linkup – Diana Ferguson Jewelry – Petals to the Metal

 

I LOVE statement earrings, and jewelry that speaks for itself. I have such a fondness and appreciation to for artists who work by hand on their creations.  Let me introduce you to this wonderful artist- Diana Ferguson, who hails from Phoenix, Arizona, where she hand makes her beautiful, original “works of art” .  I’ll be showing you how I styled her Enchanted Gardens earrings, the ones I selected from her Petals to the Metal Collection, as well as a pair from the Iced Petals Collection. At the end of the post, there is a discount code for you as well.

About Diana Ferguson’s work-

I was thrilled to be contacted by Diana, as I just love her jewelry! From Arizona, she hand makes each piece

From her site-

“Cotton rag watercolor paper is hand-patterned using original acrylic films, cut and dapped to shape and then glazed with a glossy enamel finish. The pattern-centric petals are then set with anodized aluminum and layered to create shapes in varying lengths and sizes that are stunning from every angle.

Each step of this intricate, hands-on process is performed entirely in-studio by me, resulting in a true original.”

Petals to the Metals Collection-

Based upon works of art or inspiration, these statement earrings will get your noticed! I had been debating between two styles. For a personal standpoint, I love the “You’ve Got Music in You”, as a musician and former music teacher, yes! I do! And through hearing about how much and diverse my love for various musical styles are, I was tempted!

I did however, choose something else I am quite fond of as you know. If you looked at the collection, could you guess what I chose? ( DId you read the 1st paragraph ? hmm?)

I picked the “Enchanted Garden” earrings with tones of blues, burgundy and golds – a vintage vibe is something I am quite fond of and the antique backing gold petals drew me in. I was very excited to style these! You see, I have a bit of a romantic style, someone once told me.! These earrings are very romantic and perfect for year round styling. I just love these earrings and appreciate artwork and  having these very distinctive pieces to add to my jewelry collection.

What else do I love about these earrings? They are light! No, heavy adornments on this girl’s ears! I was quite excited to wear them out for the evening to dinner, with this dress.

From her site- “Cotton rag watercolor paper is hand-patterned using original acrylic films, cut and dapped to shape and then glazed with a glossy enamel finish. The pattern-centric petals are then set with anodized aluminum and layered to create shapes in varying lengths and sizes that are stunning from every angle.”

The earrings are  Available in three lengths: 2″, 2.5″ and 3″

Telling a Story or Conveying an Image

With the image of “Enchanted Garden” in mind, we used the trail and woods behind our house. I chose one of my favorite dresses from Zara’s 2017 collection, and thought it was a perfect look with these  Diana Ferguson earrings. It was like the earrings belonged with this dress! A romantic look, I added a touch of whimsy with a plum blocked heel shoe from Jambu, as it wasn’t the expected delicate heel. The Anthropologie denim jacket made the look a bit more casual. How would you tell this story by looking at the photographs?

The earrings are  Available in three lengths: 2″, 2.5″ and 3″

Iced Gelato Collection

I also loved the colors and shine to this collection. My eyes were drawn to the copper, mustard and green shades and thought they would look beautiful against my hair. These Ice Gelato earrings have silver petal backings and beautiful intermixed colors that are stunning.

I chose the 3″ length, as I love a longer earring with my long hair. Both earrings sets are beautiful, with the Enchanted Garden characterized as a romantic piece of art. The Iced Gelato is shiny, vibrant and modern with it’s silver leaf petals. I look forward to wearing them as well.

From her website-

  • Lightweight, petal shaped, enameled aluminum drop earrings
  • Sterling silver ear wires
  • 3″ long. Length measured from top of ear wire.
  • Individually handcrafted in-studio by Diana Ferguson

DIANA is offering a 20% CODE for my readers , using CODE EDAS20. ( One time use) 

c/oBoth sets of earrings were gifted to me by Diana Ferguson. All opinions are my own and truthful.

    Stunning artistan crafted earrings. You wear them beautifully with your Zara dress in such delicate florals. I love the denim jacket you added to toughen things up. Also, those burgundy suede shoes are the perfect touch for an autumnal vibe.

    Love the title of the post! Those earrings are so beautiful and perfect with your dress, they look like they were made for one another. Love those shoes with your dress too Jess! My prayers are for Florence to weaken and for all those in her path. I know all too well what that feels like – sitting and waiting for the storm and then all the clean up afterwards. I hope everyone if prepared and stays safe!
    Hugs friend!!
