Earrings Two

I've got a wonderful commission for a pair of earrings for a wedding....these will be for the mother of the groom, and she will be wearing a lovely soft periwinkle blue dress....I've come up with two different designs and I like them both...what do you think?
The open areas will have seed beads embroidered , so you won't really see the fabric, but I wanted it to give me the right "feeling" as I am beading it.
The dark outline is a 1.25" circle....that's the outside size, although I may add a small border to it and they will be post earrings, so I'm beading on fabric covered timtex, so they will be stiff enough.

I like the composition of theone on top - there'll be more room for bead embroidery! BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

And I love the second one...

You should know better than to ask for opinions, LOL - you're STILL going to have to decide.

They are both very nice, but I prefer the second one:)

I like the second one if
a) she will be wearing silver (or crystal) jewelry rings -- bracelet), etc. or
b) she wears glasses that are silver rimmed or
c) she is grey haired --

I love the top one too -- but above would help me decide which it might be.

Lovely designs both.
