Whimsy Wednesday! Portraits of Growth!

Hello Everyone! 
Welcome to Whimsy Wednesday! 
I've been playing with bead frames and bead caps today and have a few little vignettes in the form of earring pairs to show you! 
Let's get started!

Title: Portrait of a Rose
Ingredients:  Swarovski crystals (rose, olivine), Czech glass, lead-free pewter, metal, gold-plated surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic). 
I love these bead frames! They remind me of vintage picture frames and so spark my imagination to ponder what to fill them with and the stories to be told in doing so! 
Here is another portrait and another story! 
Title: Portrait of a Gothic Flower Ingredients: Czech glass, lead-free pewter, metal, gold-plated surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic). 
The beads within the frames shaped like flowers have a wonderfully darkened iridescent coating on the back, lending a graceful, gothic feeling to this creation! The faceted glass beads closest to the earwires are edged with a weathered gunmetal finish, completing the gothic beauty of these earrings! Ah! You can almost hear the stories being whispered out loud, can't you?

I'm looking for a little bit of input from you, the reader, regarding this last creation! 
Two titles popped to mind and so I'd like to hear your thoughts on which is a more suitable title! 
Working Title #1: Another Time, Another Rose 
Working Title #2: Roses Show the Way 
Ingredients: Swarovski crystals (light amethyst), Lampwork glass roses (Artist Unknown), hand-finished brass bead caps, Czech glass, metal, gold-plated surgical steel earwires (hypo-allergenic).

So! Let me know your thoughts about those titles and I'll see you on Friday! 

Would you like to see these and my other creations in person? 
If you're in the central Minnesota(USA) area this Saturday, you can!
