    Thanks ladies! I wish Iolite came in big chunky beads. It’s one of my fav colors. A bit hard to capture the violet tones with the camera.

    Lovely! I love the colors that you used, they highlight the charcoal (I think) colored pearl. Great job!

    Hi O.P.
    The pearls are from a stretch bracelet that I took apart.They’re gray/green/blue depending on the angle,and light.

    Hi, Nancy~ Ahh, reused beads are great…they sound really pretty and the colors you paired with them surely highlight the colors in the pearls.

    So cute! I’ve been in a mood to make multi-component earrings lately (cascades, pearls w/embellished tops) – I’ll have to try this new twist – if my headpin supply holds out!
