Pinwheel Plant Inspired Earrings by stefaniekraus

These dazzling earrings by stefaniekraus are based on a macro photograph of a red and green Aeonium succulent (Pinwheel) that I took in Mendocino. I love how the green and red create such a strong contrast and how the closeup makes the plant look almost like an abstract painting.

This and next month, 100% of the proceeds from my store will go to the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society. It's a non-profit animal shelter, lead by wonderful and caring people, who suffered a horrible fire last year. They are currently raising money to rebuild the shelter and my goal is to help in any way that I can. I used to be a volunteer when the shelter was fully functional, and I loved to work with the cats there. I am also regularly donating money to animal-related causes.

In addition, I volunteer my design services to the Humane Farming Association in San Rafael and recently redesigned their website,
