Drop Earrings


About this design:

Just wanted to try making earring that aren't linear.

The first pair is glass beads. I know that the color is tinted, but they are silver colored, not gold.

The second pair is raw sodalite. That pieces of sodalite have rich almost metallic-y blues with the white streaks.

Components:

1st pair: silver rimmed glass teardrop, Czech glass, eye pin 2nd pair: brass wire, raw Sodalite

    Pretty color combo on the pink earrings. And your wire doodle earrings are such fun.

    Wire doodle earrings….that’s a great name for your non-linear designs. I especially like the chunky look of the sodalite pair. :)

    I have several strands of unpolished sodalite nuggets. The surface on some of them looks like a deep blue velvet.
