Purple Pendulums


About this design:

More lovely beads from LB! I love the shape of these ~ they just cried out to be wrapped! Unfortunately one of them chipped at the bottom when I was doing my final "tweaking" but I hope it's not that noticeable!

Components:

Lilac Lace Agate Rice, 20g Sterling Silver wire

    I love those headpins – I wish I could find some of those. A friend told me her little granddaughter got her ears pierced recently, and purple is her favorite color. I guess I will be making some “purple big girl earrings” in the not so distant future.

    KH those headpins are easy to make ~ I just hammered the end of the 20g wire to stop the bead falling off! :)

    Starsparkle these earrings are fabulous and you cannot see the chip. I love the idea of smacking or was that smashing the ends, my leather hammer came in today and now I have something else to hammer on. All of you are so creative, probably could write a best seller with all your wonderful ideas. The lilac lace is a beautiful compliment to the silver, and your wire wrap rocks! :)
