Maja - Art Nouveau Antiqued sterling silver earrings - Apatite, Peridot, Prasiolite and sky blue Topaz - "Spring" challenge

Last week’s theme was - Spring, picked by Palepink.

So here is my vision of Spring in Apatite, Peridot, Prasiolite, sky blue Topaz and Silver - Maja earrings. The name comes from Maja, who is the Oscan Earth-Goddess, and an ancient Roman Goddess of springtime, warmth, and increase. She causes the plants to grow through Her gentle heat, and the month of May is probably named for Her.
